After first laying out the background information essential for properly reading Esther, Fox offers commentary on the entire text that clearly unpacks its message and relevance. A key feature of the book is its in-depth attention to each character in the story of Esther; Fox shows how they were carefully shaped by the author of Esther to teach a new view of how to live as Jews in foreign lands.Complete with informative appendixes that canvass a range of important issues still occupying Esther scholarship, Fox's commentary is among the finest discussions of this challenging ancient text.
