P & R Publishing Esther & Ruth: Reformed Expository Commentary [REC]

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.

About The Reformed Expository Commentary Series:

The Reformed Expository Commentary focuses on the English rendering of the biblical text, and thus does not address concerns of the original language nor academic technicalities. Rather, proceeding section-by-section it focuses on the narrative flow of the biblical book, while drawing out significant points or theological emphases in the text, and then applies them to the daily life of the Christian.

br/>The various points addressed range between historical events taking place within a books narrative, or upon significant doctrinal statements that are made. The application or "guidance" section as the series calls it rounds out each of the particular emphases from the text making it a complete expository volume. Each commentary approaches the text from a Reformed theological perspective, and can be used profitably for either study or devotion.

Major Perspectives:

  • Scripture: Inerrant & Revealed
  • Theology: Traditional/Conservative Reformed
  • Wider Tradition: Protestant/Evangelical
  • Audience: Pastors/Laity
  • Uses: Scripture Study, General Reading, Devotional

I have only read the Ruth commentary so far, but it is very good. It brought out many points I had never thought of before.

I found this commentary to be very well written, with a little bit of humor but staying true to the text. My first Reformed Expository Commentary, but not my last.

Great exposition of Esther and Ruth. When I preached through Ruth earlier this year, I found this commentary to be one of the most helpful.

I have a number of commentaries on Ruth...this was by far the better of them all...especially good if you are preaching through Ruth or leading a Bible study. His comments were particularly insightful and preached well. I never read the section on Esther...I can only comment on Ruth.
