The Tyndale Commentary Series has long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, each book offers clear, reliable, and relevant expositions.
This classic InterVarsity Press resource is now being completely retypeset and presented in a fresh, new large paperback format for the twenty-first century. Every volume is being re-issued, beginning in February 2008 with the Pentateuch and the Gospels, and finishing in spring 2009.
In addition, the release of Esther by Debra Reid is the first of completely new replacement volumes that are planned for the entire Old Testament series over the coming years.
The introduction to each Tyndale volume is a concise yet thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation.
The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.
This commentary expounds the meaning of the text 'Esther'for general readers.
