Item Description...
The Word Biblical Commentary delivers the best in biblical scholarship, from the leading scholars of our day who share a commitment to Scripture as divine revelation. This series emphasizes a thorough analysis of textual, linguistic, structural, and theological evidence. The result is judicious and balanced insight into the meanings of the text in the framework of biblical theology. These widely acclaimed commentaries serve as exceptional resources for the professional theologian and instructor, the seminary or university student, the working minister, and everyone concerned with building theological understanding from a solid base of biblical scholarship.

Publishers Description

The books of Ezra and Nehemiah are vital and significant records of times as tumultuous as our own, as Israel returned from the Babylonian captivity and undertook the rebuilding of the Temple, even while beset by enemies without and dissension within the community.

For the student of the post-exilic period of biblical history and thought, a detailed knowledge of both books -along with the companion history in the Chronicles is essential, says Dr. H. G. M. Williamson.

Based on years of intensive study and research, this new commentary provides competent guidance into the complexities of Ezra and Nehemiah. The author gives special attention to the perplexing scholarly problems associated with their form, structure, and literary history. Supporting the view that much of this material is from the fifth century B.C., just as it claims to be, he concludes that "there is good reason to approach Ezra and Nehemiah as two parts of single work and that this work is to be regarded as complete as it stands."

Dr. Williamson also focuses on sections of these books commonly referred to as the "Ezra Memoir" and the "Nehemiah Memoir." He notes the specifically theological purpose of such sections, in which the rebuilding of Jerusalem and the Temple are defended against the enemies, and the leaders of Israel plead for recognition of their faithfulness to the commission given them by God through the Persian kings.

The integrity and balance in Dr. Williamson's methods, approach, and goals are apparent throughout this commentary, which strives always to give exegesis the greatest prominence rather than impose foreign, a priori categories of interpretation on the material.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
This is the commentary on Ezra-Nehemiah  Mar 29, 2000
If you can only own one commentary on Ezra-Nehemiah, this is undoubtedly the one you should have. It is also probably the best Old Testament volume in the Word series. Biblical specialists will find a wealth of information here, including Williamson's detailed arguments about authorship, date, and history of composition of these books. It was Williamson, along with Sara Japhet, who finally broke the decade old consensus that the Chronicler wrote Ezra and Nehemiah. His previous arguments on this issue are significantly advanced in the commentary. Williamson's translation and text-critical notes are detailed and thorough. At the same time, Williamson's discussions of literary structure, his careful exegesis, and his theological commentary should be accessble and of great value for non-specialists. Some advances have been made on archaelogical and sociological issues over the decade and a half since this commentary was written, but it still stands as the best single reference to these two biblical books.
