Product Description

A biblical scholar well known for his expertise in ancient Near Eastern studies, expecially Ugaritic, author Fensham places Ezra and Nehemiah against the ancient Near East environment. In his introduction, Fensham discusses the original unity of the books, as well as the problems of authorship. He then treats the historical and religious background of the books, taking special note of the development of a Jewish society in postexilic times. Text and language are next, followed by a thorough bibliography. The commentary proper, based on Fensham's own fresh translation of the biblical texts, is richly documented and displays cautious good judgement, sensible approach, willingness to consider different options, and keen insight into the religious meaning of these key Hebrew texts.

    A helpful guide to Ezra & Nehemiah.

    Fensham has written a very helpful commentary on Ezra and Nehemiah. His perspective is very similar to that of Kidner's smaller treatment. This longer work by Fensham, however, delves into more technical detail than Kidner's volume. His introduction is particularly helpful as he looks at the historical background, religious background, and theology of the books. This is a very strong work.

    This is a very good technical commentary. It offers alot of help in the way of the Hebrew language and the Old Testament setting. It offers some application for today, but not alot. This commentary would be good to read along side Brown's commentary. I would recommend this commentary for a technical commentary.
