Love, faithfulness, and redemption are among the themes of Ruth, Song of Songs, and Esther. This masterful New Beacon Bible Commentary, written by three accomplished scholars, highlights the unique features of each of these three biblical books. Ruth’s portrayal of love, devotion, and redemption is set alongside the Song of Song’s poetic celebration of God s gift of love between a man and a woman. And rounding out this incredible volume is Esther’s story of God, faithful but seemingly hidden, working through human hands to reverse the intentions of evil and deliver his people.
