SNYMAN, S.D. (Fanie). To take a second look at Malachi the book. Herv. teol. stud. [online]. 2015, vol.71, n.3, pp.01-06. ISSN 2072-8050. http://dx.doi.org/10.4102/HTS.V71I3.2854.
An investigation into some of the literary features of the book of Malachi reveals that each unit is structured in a twofold way. The macrostructure of the book also shows that the book can be divided into two parts. The results of this investigation strengthens the recent trend in the research of Malachi that it is unlikely that the book underwent an extensive redactional process over a period of time and that it is rather more likely that the book was written in a relatively short period of time.
