Product Description

Many commentaries on the books of Ezra and Nehemiah wallow in historical speculation: which man came first? When did Ezra travel to Jerusalem? What route did he take? Such questions don't much help preachers and teachers trying to explain the texts to others! In the clear Interpretation format, Throntveit's commentary emphasizes Ezra-Nehemiah's character as narrative and story. His approach enables you to communicate the meaning of the text without having to ''rearrange'' it to make sense.

Publisher's Description

Studies in the books of Ezra-Nehemiah have tended to become bogged down with such questions as, Who came first, Ezra or Nehemiah, and were they contemporaries? When did Ezra make his journey to Jerusalem, how many trips did he make, and which route did he take? In this commentary, the author undertakes a theological reading which emphasizes its character as narrative and story. He avoids rearranging the text and, with the exception of chapter five of Nehemiah, he seeks to understand the narrative as it was received. In general, Mark Throntveit avoids an overly historical approach to the text and presents a clear picture of Ezra and Nehemiah.

Interpretation: A Bible Commentary for Teaching and Preaching is a distinctive resource for those who interpret the Bible in the church. Planned and written specifically for teaching and preaching needs, this critically acclaimed biblical commentary is a major contribution to scholarship and ministry.
