Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther

Set in the Persian Empire, one of the greatest kingdoms the world has ever known, the stories contained in the books of Ezra and Nehemiah provide the most comprehensive scriptural account of the restored Judean community after the Babylonian exile. The book of Esther is also set in the Persian period of Israel's history, although the concern is for a different community.

Carrying forward brilliantly the pattern established by Barclay's New Testament series, the Daily Study Bible has been extended to cover the entire Old Testament as well. Invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use, the Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and eminently readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.

Offers some good theological insight

User Review  - John - Christianbook.com

This is an introdcutory commentary that offers great theological insight. Again, it is only an introductory commentary, but there is still some depth here. This is definitely one to get your hands on for an intro. Read full review
