Product Description

Does God help those who help themselves? That may seem to be the message of the books of Esther and Ruth. Yet a closer reading shows a gracious and sovereign God at work, one who uses obviously flawed people--unable even to help themselves--to rescue His people and prepare for the coming of Christ.

About The Reformed Expository Commentary Series:

The Reformed Expository Commentary focuses on the English rendering of the biblical text, and thus does not address concerns of the original language nor academic technicalities. Rather, proceeding section-by-section it focuses on the narrative flow of the biblical book, while drawing out significant points or theological emphases in the text, and then applies them to the daily life of the Christian.

br/>The various points addressed range between historical events taking place within a books narrative, or upon significant doctrinal statements that are made. The application or "guidance" section as the series calls it rounds out each of the particular emphases from the text making it a complete expository volume. Each commentary approaches the text from a Reformed theological perspective, and can be used profitably for either study or devotion.

Major Perspectives:

  • Scripture: Inerrant & Revealed
  • Theology: Traditional/Conservative Reformed
  • Wider Tradition: Protestant/Evangelical
  • Audience: Pastors/Laity
  • Uses: Scripture Study, General Reading, Devotional

Author Bio

Iain M. Duguid (PhD, University of Cambridge) is professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia. He has written numerous works of biblical exposition, including Esther & Ruth in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, Ezekiel in the NIV Application Commentary series, and Numbers in the Preaching the Word series.

Editorial Reviews

An amazing commentary! Rarely does an expositor demonstrate such virtuosity. But Iain Duguid brings it all together: a specialist’s knowledge of the Hebrew text and culture, a preacher’s eye for theme and structure, a pastor’s skill in nuanced application, a theologian’s grasp of Christ-centered theology (that would make Geerhardus Vos smile), and a wordsmith’s attention to language and lingering metaphor. Duguid’s Esther and Ruth will elevate and inspire generations of readers and preachers. -- R. Kent Hughes, Senior Pastor Emeritus, College Church in Wheaton

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. -- Bruce Waltke, Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando; Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Regent College

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 God’s Word and God’s people, greatly aids in that dual task of faithful preachers. -- Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary
