Product Description

Derek Kidner begins the introductory section of this commentary discussing the history of Persia and the Jewish people, as well as the theology stated in these prophetic books. He then examines the books of Ezra and Nehemiah, which chart the Jews' return from exile to Jerusalem and the beginnings of that rebirth. As the drama unfolds, we see how international politics, nationalist pride, wise leadership, political intrigue and opportunism, internal dissension and compromise all shape events. But above all and through all we see the good hand of God at work.

Non-technical, conservative, verse-by-verse commentary. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Publisher's Description

"The chequered story of the Kings, a matter of nearly five centuries, had ended disastrously in 587 B.C. with the sack of Jerusalem, the fall of the monarchy and the removal to Babylonia of all that made Judah politically viable. It was a death to make way for a rebirth." So begins Derek Kidner in this introduction and commentary to the books of Ezra and Nehemiah which chart the Jews' return from exile to Jerusalem and the beginnings of that rebirth. As the drama unfolds, we see how international politics, nationalist pride, wise leadership, political intrigue and opportunism, internal dissension and compromise all shape events. But above all and through all we see the good hand of God at work. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series.

Author Bio

The works of Derek Kidner (MA, Christ's College, Cambridge) are full of the marks of both professor and pastor with his evenhanded scholarship as well as his devotional insight. These qualities have made his commentaries in the Tyndale Old Testament Commentary series and The Bible Speaks Today series some of the most beloved and popular of recent decades. Kidner had a long career in both the church and the academy in England. He studied at Cambridge University and then served in the ministry for several years before becoming a senior tutor at Oak Hill Theological College. Kidner began his writing career while serving as warden of Tyndale House in Cambridge from 1964 to 1978, publishing his ninth and final book, in 1987.

Editorial Reviews

"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible."
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes."
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries."

    A helpful brief guide to Ezra & Nehemiah.

    Kidner is a top-notch scholar and gifted writer. He writes from a conservative perspective. If anyone is seeking a brief, reliable, and accessible guide to Ezra & Nehemiah, this is it. This commentary is brief. It does not attempt a detailed study of the Hebrew language, nor extensive interaction with alternative viewpoints. Still it is a solid work.

    This commentary was recommended to me, and so I picked it up. I have to say that Kidner's other works are good, but this one suffers some what. While it is an introductory commentary, it is not a great one. Look else where if you need a good starting point.
