Item description for The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah (New International Commentary on the Old Testament) by F. Charles Fensham...

A biblical scholar well known for his expertise in ancient Near Eastern studies, expecially Ugaritic, author Fensham places Ezra and Nehemiah against the ancient Near East environment. In his introduction, Fensham discusses the original unity of the books, as well as the problems of authorship. He then treats the historical and religious background of the books, taking special note of the development of a Jewish society in postexilic times. Text and language are next, followed by a thorough bibliography. The commentary proper, based on Fensham's own fresh translation of the biblical texts, is richly documented and displays cautious good judgement, sensible approach, willingness to consider different options, and keen insight into the religious meaning of these key Hebrew texts.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah (New International Commentary on the Old Testament)?

The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah (New International Commentary on the Old Testament)  Feb 8, 2007
Book in excellent condition. Speedy delivery.
Strong in historical aspect  Jul 20, 2006
This book probably not as strong as H.G.M. Williamson (WBC 16) in theological aspect of Ezra and Nehemiah, one can compare how they handle the difficult issue of mixed-marriage to see how Williamson surpass Fensham, but this commentary is very good in giving historical perspective and in showing flow of the books. This is a major value because different with other books in the Bible, knowing historical background is exteremely important for us to understand the book of Ezra and Nehemiah. Compared this commentary with Williamson's and you will get a very good perspective about Ezra and Nehemiah.

NB: Because Fensham gave no historical-chronological chart, You will get much help if you can find such a chart in study bibles or old testament introductions/surveys.
Fensham has met our Lord personally in 1989 and I believe he would be rejoiced to know his work still a blessing for me in 2006.
