An amazing commentary! Rarely does an expositor demonstrate such virtuosity. But Iain Duguid brings it all together: a specialists knowledge of the Hebrew text and culture, a preachers eye for theme and structure, a pastors skill in nuanced application, a theologians grasp of Christ-centered theology (that would make Geerhardus Vos smile), and a wordsmiths attention to language and lingering metaphor. Duguids Esther and Ruth will elevate and inspire generations of readers and preachers.
This exposition of Esther and Ruth is a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones. The author giives us a good dose of healing theology in a most relevant manner. From now on I will require my students to read this engaging commentary for their edification and delight.
The authors of the Westminster Confession of Faith advised pastors to speak to both the necessities and capacities of our people. This commentary series, which so well understands Gods Word and Gods people, greatly aids in that dual task of faithful preachers.
