This commentary series is based upon post-liberal theology and follows the narrative rather then the historical critical. Though this commentary can be used for study which I have referenced in my theology studies, it can be very useful for the lay reader as it interprets the story and not the history behind the passages. It can be annoying that there are two books in one book, and mixing Esther with Daniel I thought was strange, Never the less this is an excellent commentary with much wisdom and facts to help anyone understand the books better.
Esther Daniel are two challenging books of Diaspora community in the Bibles. The past becomes the contemporary reflection to Christian life. Should the revival also happen in our life from celebration to evacuating of worship,from action to a Thanksgiving heart? One of the key points that this book mentions is about the believer individual taking the initiative action to fight for His Kingdom of Glory. With faithful,theological,ethical,and missional aspects through the book. Deeper reflection in quite time.
