If you’ve never read the book of Haggai, I can tell you two things:
- You’re in the same boat as a majority of Bible readers. Seriously, it made my list of least-read books of the Bible.
- You’re missing out.
I’ll be honest: it’s not the most riveting of Bible documents. No plagues or epic visions or battles or miracles. God pretty much tells Israel, “Hey, maybe your laziness and disrespect toward Me has something to do with your less-than-awesome circumstances.” (You can read a quick overview of Haggai here.)
It’s a short, convicting book—and it’s even better with illustrations!
Laura Converse has illustrated the book of Haggai with various art pieces, and you might enjoy scrolling through some of them.
I think it’s one of her coolest collections. I have a few teasers here, but you can see the whole set of Haggai illustrations on her blog.
