Item description for The Preacher's Commentary - Vol. 11 - Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther (Preachers Commentary #11) by Mark D. Roberts...
Overview In a period of history like ours that cries out for decisive and compelling leaders in the church, Dr. Mark Roberts' commentary of Ezra-Nehemiah (one book in the Hebrew and treated as such in this commentary) provides rich resources for understanding and implementing biblical principles of leadership. The author's scholarship helps us live in the tumultuous world of Ezra and Nehemiah while at the same time enabling us to discover God's strategy for the church in our turbulent world today. The interpretation of Esther will provide preachers and teachers a fresh approach to this often misinterpreted and neglected book of the Bible, challenging us to consider what it means to live as God's people in an alien, secular culture. Part of Mastering the Old Testament, a book-by-book commentary by today's great Bible teachers.
General editor Lloyd J. Ogilvie brings together a team of skilled and exceptional communicators to blend sound scholarship with life-related illustrations.
The design for the Preacher's Commentary gives the reader an overall outline of each book of the Bible. Following the introduction, which reveals the author's approach and salient background on the book, each chapter of the commentary provides the Scripture to be exposited. The New King James Bible has been chosen for the Preacher's Commentary because it combines with integrity the beauty of language, underlying Hebrew and Greek textual basis, and thought-flow of the 1611 King James Version, while replacing obsolete verb forms and other archaisms with their everyday contemporary counterparts for greater readability. Reverence for God is preserved in the capitalization of all pronouns referring to the Father, Son, or Holy Spirit. Readers who are more comfortable with another translation can readily find the parallel passage by means of the chapter and verse reference at the end of each passage being exposited. The paragraphs of exposition combine fresh insights to the Scripture, application, rich illustrative material, and innovative ways of utilizing the vibrant truth for his or her own life and for the challenge of communicating it with vigor and vitality.

A Good Interactive Working Commentary Sep 7, 2009
"Mark Roberts' profound faith and dynamic adventure as a man in Christ shines through on each page of this commentary."
I found this commentary to be down to earth and to the basic foundations of the original languages. Dr. Roberts' direction of teaching is from a learned individual of the content, not just from a reasoned point of view. I would buy other commentaries by this author.
