In a period of history like ours that cries out for decisive and compelling leaders in the church, Dr. Mark Roberts' commentary of Ezra-Nehemiah (one book in the Hebrew and treated as such in this commentary) provides rich resources for understanding and implementing biblical principles of leadership. The author's scholarship helps us live in the tumultuous world of Ezra and Nehemiah while at the same time enabling us to discover God's strategy for the church in our turbulent world today. The interpretation of Esther will provide preachers and teachers a fresh approach to this often misinterpreted and neglected book of the Bible, challenging us to consider what it means to live as God's people in an alien, secular culture. Part of Mastering the Old Testament, a book-by-book commentary by today's great Bible teachers.
