Top Ezra Commentaries // #1

Charles Fensham presents The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah for The New International Commentary on the Old Testament.  One of the strong points of this commentary is how Fensham explains matters in a way that is quite accessible to the layperson.

This series serves as an authoritative guide bridging the cultural gap between today’s world and the world of ancient Israel. Each commentary opens with an introduction to the biblical book, looking especially at questions of its background, authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology. A select bibliography also points readers to resources fore their own study. Each volume aims to help the reader hear God’s word as clearly as possible.

It is invaluable for individual devotional study, for group discussion, and for classroom use. The Daily Study Bible provides a useful, reliable, and intimately readable way to discover what the Scriptures were saying then and what God is saying today.
