2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Mr. Stephen Redman VINE VOICE on 9 Sept. 2014
Format: Paperback
For a basic overview of individual books of the Bible, 'for Everyone' is a series not to be missed. It is aimed at the non-academic reader, who is looking to get a little deeper into the scriptures. I particularly enjoy John Goldingay's manner and writing style, and whereas I may not agree with his perspective entirely, he is always good to read! This volume is no different in quality from the rest, and he handles Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther with great professionalism and writes from his very high-brow position in a very low-brow style - which at the end of the day is the mark of a great communicator.
I particularly enjoyed his insights into Esther.
It is silly to avoid this series, and whenever a volume comes up on offer, I would recommend it thoroughly. Great for home groups and low key bible studies too.

0 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Samuel Barber on 6 Aug. 2014
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
One of the things that this commentary explores is what it means to be a true descendant of Abraham. Those who are mixed race, or do not have a uniform history are not part of the true remnant of Israel. It's a bit like saying that an Englishman of West Indian origin like Lewis Hamilton or Steve McQueen are not true Englishmen because they do not have a history stretching back to the Battle of Hastings. In this sense, the book of Ezra has relevance to modern audiences because it speaks about how ethnicity makes up one's nationality.

The commentary on Nehemiah has nothing to say other than sharing your joy with others as well as your food with those who can't afford to provide for themselves.

Good transaction but liberal commentary 8 Jan. 2014
By J. Wilson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The transaction to purchase and deliver the book through Amazon was great but I was disappointed that the book is quite liberal from my perspective. I prefer a more conservative commentary. I should have guessed when the title included "(Old Testament for Everyone)" that it was from a more liberal viewpoint. It would have been nice to have something about the author included in the book description.
