5.0 out of 5 stars a model commentary 1 Sept. 2010
By Anthony J. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
(These comments apply to the section on Ruth, I have not read the section on Esther). This commentary is absolutely superb, not only for its exegesis and conclusions, but for its method. Bush makes full use of discourse analyses and modern linguistics, along with recent archaeology and the traditional canons of biblical criticism. It is easy to read and well argued . . . fun to read (if you could say such a thing about a technical commentary!). The author also hints at very good theological application for the modern preacher and christian. I wish more NT commentaries would carry this level of linguistic awareness.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for linguistic analysis 26 Feb. 2015
By Brooke Warner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Excellent commentary, especially for text-critical work. If you are interested in linguistics, grammar, syntax, and how all that works, this is the book for you. In fact, it's so detailed in that regard that I wouldn't really recommend it for "lighter" purposes. If you're not interested in intensive language analysis, pass on this book. I'm in seminary, taking a class on Hebrew exegesis, so this book was perfect.

5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T PASS UP THIS BOOK!!! 9 Sept. 2014
By R. Sheffield - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I am still working my way through the commentary on the Book of Ruth. But I heartily recommend this. A commentary does so much more for the reader than simply reading the text. A commentary looks at the culture behind the text, explores the views of various other commentators, discusses the wording of various sentences -- and forces the reader to concentrate on the text and its contents, rather than just breezing through -- which is what a lot of people do with the Old Testament. There are good lessons in the Book of Ruth and much exists that gives one pause for thought. And once you have "paused," you learn more about how the text applies to you and your life and to your walk with God.
