Product Description

Featuring new content and translation, Reid's analysis of Esther is designed to help pastors, students, and laypeople understand what the text says and what it means for us today. Her section-by-section commentary considers historical context; canonical, literary, and textual issues; and theology and purpose. 168 Pages. Softcover from InterVarsity.

The Tyndale series of commentaries takes each Bible book section by section, drawing out its main themes. It comments on individual verses and problems of interpretation. Additional notes give a fuller discussion of particular difficulties, showing the true meaning of the text and its message.

Publisher's Description

The place: Persia. The time: fifth-century BC. The Jews were threatened with genocide. A decree ordered the extermination of young and old, women and children. The book of Esther describes how this crisis was averted through the bravery of Esther, the wisdom of Mordecai and the unity of the Jewish people. Debra Reid's approachable commentary helps us see even more clearly in the book of Esther the God who quietly --and sometimes unexpectedly-- works behind the scenes to order the events of our lives. This completely new volume replaces the previous editon of Esther in the Tyndale Commentary series written by Joyce Baldwin.

Editorial Reviews

"An accessible and thought-provoking reference work."
"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world."
"[Reid] successfully offers her an integrated reading of the Esther story without delving into in-depth scholarly debates, while preserving a good sense of accuracy in interpretation."
". . .highly recommended for community library religious collections."
"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."
