Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Bibliotheca Sacra
"This is a very useful commentary. The author's scholarship provides a sound base. His bibliography is inclusive and up to date. He interacts with all important positions on major questions. His view is conservative and clearly reasoned. . . A commendable work."

Hebrew Studies
"Provides Old Testament students with a most excellent tool for the analysis and exegesis of Ezra and Nehemiah. . . This volume has many strengths and practical suggestions for treating problem passages, and follows a good and logical outline of the combined texts. Ministers as well as scholars will find it useful."

Biblical Theology Bulletin
"The strengths of this volume are clear. Fensham uses his expertise in Semitic languages to address the many linguistic difficulties which appear in these two biblical books. In addition, his use of ancient Near Eastern history and archaeology is helpful. These elements, plus generous documentation, make this a substantial commentary."
