4.0 out of 5 stars Quite old but still alive, 2 Jan 2002
Michael Baxter (LONDON United Kingdom) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Esther (International Critical Commentary) (Hardcover)
Like so many books in this series, this dates from the early years of the 20th century. It can thus take no account of the enormous strides in Biblical research in recent decades. Anyone studying the Book of Esther would need to get some more recent publications. However, this book is not yet superseded and should not be neglected by the serious student. For example, its study of text criticism and the value of the various Greek translations for that purpose is still unmatched. Some readers will be put off by Paton's view that there is little or no historical value in Esther, but this attitude can easily be ignored and the book used for its valuable material. In summary: use this book with care, supplement with more recent books, but don't ignore it.
