By any assessment, Esther is a rather strange book to find in the Bible

By any assessment, Esther is a rather strange book to find in the Bible. Not only is it, along with Daniel, the only book of the Bible to be set entirely outside of the Promised Land, it also shows no interest in that land.

The Message of Esther: God Present but Unseen by David Firth.

Written largely by conservative evangelicals with real-world preaching and pastoral experience, the series often acts as a collection of expository sermons-rich with practical implications. The Bible Speaks Today is a fine resource that works at listening to the message in the original situation of the biblical books and hearing God’s Word for today through the Scriptures.

The Bible Speaks Today; Downers Grove, Illinois: Inter Varsity Press . David Atkinson, who is Fellow and Chaplain of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, authored not only The Message olGenesis 1-11 in this series but also The Message ofRuth.

The Bible Speaks Today; Downers Grove, Illinois: Inter Varsity Press, 1990, 190 pages. Stott affIrm, "The Bible Speaks Today describes a series of both Old Testament and New Testament expositions, which are characterized by a threefold ideal: to expound the biblical text with accuracy, to relate it to contemporary life, and to be readable" David Atkinson, who is Fellow and Chaplain of Corpus Christi College, Oxford, authored not only The Message olGenesis 1-11 in this series but also The Message ofRuth.

By any assessment, Esther is a rather strange book to find in the Bible. Not only is it, along with Daniel, the only book of the Bible to be set entirely outside of the Promised Land, it also shows no interest in that land. More than that, Esther is the only book in the Bible which definitely does not mention God. None of this should be taken as meaning that the book has no theological intention--on the contrary it has a developed theology, but it is a theology which operates precisely because it does not mention God directly. In this volume in the Bible Speaks Today commentary series, David Firth explores this paradoxically important book and its implications for our own contemporary context, where the reality of God’s presence is experienced against a backdrop of God’s relative anonymity and seeming absence.
Comments to eBook The Message of Esther (The Bible Speaks Today Series)
Doukasa
This is the second book of The Bible Speaks Today series, and I have enjoyed them. Very good for private devotions, small group study, or sermon preparation, as they are on the "devotional" side of the commentary spectrum. However, there is a lot more depth in these than say a Warren Wiersbe "Be" series. So really probably in between that and a more technical commentary.

Highly recommend this study of Esther.

"Pastoral and Practical". These are the words you will be thinking when you finish "The Message of Esther" by David G. Firth, as it is one of the most well exit books on Esther that I have had the privilege of reading. This book is parts of the ever-growing series called "The Bible Speaks Today", produced by IVP Academic.  "The Bible Speaks Today" is a thoroughly Evangelical series which serves as an introduction as well as practicality explaining the Book of Esther through a thoroughly Evangelical perspective.

In the introduction, with regard to the dating of Esther, Firth argues well for an early date, I abet briefly, against critical arguments for older dating. His arguments systematically destroy any critical arguments that have been put forth to this time. His arguments are up today and even focus on the most critical and modern viewpoints, even ones that have just recently been published.

Firth is a excellent old testament exegete specifically and when it comes to Babylonian exile history, it shines in this volume.  Firth makes sure that the reader is getting an important look into the culture of the day and its influence on the text. Through this process Firth brings about conclusions which are gold for any pastor preaching exegetically through the Book of Esther.

Through exegeting the narrative portion of Esther, demonstrates why he is one of the greatest Old Testament scholar of the modern age, which makes this introduction to the Book of Esther a must-read by pastors preaching or Layman teaching through the Book of Esther either in the Pulpit or in the Sunday School room. I highly recommend this volume as an aid in either of these circumstances.

This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.

The Bible Speaks Today series by IVP continues its high standard of excellence in this fine volume on Esther by David G. Firth. Firth is emerging as a preeminent commentator on the historical books of the OT. He writes with quality, consistency, and a conservative outlook that pastors or teachers will love and scholars will respect.

The Introduction is short, but succinct in getting you going on studying Esther. He explains the options out there on genre for the Book of Esther and he concludes it is “an historical work”. His assessment of purpose makes much sense. He devotes the largest portion of the Introduction to the main characters of the book. That was an effective approach that i enjoyed.

The commentary itself was outstanding. He kept the flow, saw the forest along with the necessary trees, and gave many valuable insights along the way. I highly recommend this volume.

I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255.
