Item description for Esther And Ruth (Reformed Expository Commentary) by Iain M. Duguid...

Does God help those who help themselves? That may seem to be the message of the books of Esther and Ruth. Yet a closer reading shows a gracious and sovereign God at work, one who uses obviously flawed people-unable even to help themselves-to rescue his people and prepare for the coming of Christ. Esther and Ruth is part of the Reformed Expository Commentary series, aimed at both pastors and lay teachers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.

Publishers Description
In Esther, God works in invisible ways to save his people; in Ruth, God's grace come to Naomi unexpectedly. The central message: Christ's sufferings and subsequent glory.

Reviews - What do customers think about Esther And Ruth (Reformed Expository Commentary)?

Marvelous, Superb and Comprehensive come to Mind.  Jul 5, 2007
Iain M. Duguid has done a great job of bringing out many of the themes of Esther and Ruth. We all know that Esther is about the Providence God and that Ruth is the story of Redemption. And Iain M. Duguid has wonderfully expanded on these topics - seeing the hand of God in ways that are easy to over look, but are clearly in the text.

Iain M. Duguid not only is good at the big picture, but he also is good at telling the many sub themes in the book. In the book of Esther you will come to know King Ahasuerus and will chuckle at the way he rules his kingdom. You will learn about Esther and will wonder about her decisions to hide her Jewishness. You will marvel at her patience and wisdom as she sets the trap for Haman. You will cheer as Mordecai comes to power and writes the new edict enabling the Jews to defend themselves and destroy their enemies. Iain M. Duguid has done a great job keeping all these sub themes alive through the book.

In Ruth you will learn about Naomi and her bitterness and will see how God steadily and faithfully works in her heart. In the end Naomi gives praise to God, something she was not able to do at the beginning. You will be amazed at the incredible faith of Ruth as she commits to Naomi and to the Lord. Ruth was a woman that had an active faith. Her faith was there even when Naomi's wasn't. And of course there is Boaz, the redeemer. His faith and character are shining examples of our Redeemer - Jesus Christ. The book of Ruth is about all these sub themes that Iain M. Duguid keeps alive through the whole book.

I know that women like the books of Esther and Ruth, but these books are for everyone. They will make you marvel at God's faithfulness.
Extremely Insightful  May 4, 2006
This is one of the best written and insightful commentaries that I own (though I have only read the Ruth half). I have a number of commentaries on Ruth and this one outshined them all in it's clarity and preachability. If you are going to lead a study on Ruth or preach from Ruth this book is an invaluable resource for good ideas.
