Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther For Everyone
Full Product Description
‘Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther for Everyone’ is John Goldingay’s next installment on his biblical expedition through the Old Testament, in which he invites anyone who would like to join him for the every-man’s theological adventure.
Drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay turns his scholarly gaze towards three books of the Bible that hold much wisdom. These books tell us how the Jewish people persevered through oppression, the threat of genocide and intimidation. With strength and determination they rebuilt their community and began to worship as God’s people again.
For readers today, these insightful and inspiring stories – the faithful priest, the obedient builder and the steadfast Queen – sends ripples of hope, strength and guidance into today’s Christian walk. With strikingly clear language and profound analysis, this Bible commentary will help anyone and everyone to understand and engage with the Bible.
John Goldingay is the David Allan Hubbard Professor of Old Testament in the School of Theology at the Fuller Theological Seminary in the USA. Prior to joining Fuller, he was principal and a professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at St John’s Theological College, Nottingham. His published titles include Old Testament Theology (two volumes published, with more to come) and commentaries on Daniel, Isaiah, and Psalms. As well as being a member of the Society of Biblical Literature, he serves on the editorial board for the Library of Hebrew Bible/Old Testament Studies.

What awaited the people of God who returned from exile? What awaited those who didn't? The books of Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther tell how the Jewish people, through faith, courage and persistence, overcame opposition, intimidation and the threat of genocide. Despite the efforts of their enemies, they rebuilt their lives and worshipped as a godly people once more. Today, the inspiring stories of Ezra the priest, Nehemiah the builder and Esther the queen encourage us to seek God and know that, come what may, he is our help and strength.
Using personal anecdote, a witty and lively style, and drawing on his considerable theological knowledge, John Goldingay takes us deep into the unfolding story of the Old Testament. And, as he guides us in our understanding of these time-honoured words and the ancient world they describe, he helps us to apply what we read to our lives.
