Ezra-Nehemiah-Ester ~ Cornerstone Biblical Commentary

This is a biblical commentary book on the Books of the Bible for Ezra-Nehemiah and Ester, it is in the New living Translation. This book has a good structure that makes it easy to follow and read. This version is volume 5B of a full set. Each book is explained in detail by author, date of writing, occasion of writing, audience, canonicity and textual history, literary style, major themes and an outline. The commentary is detailed by explaining verse by verse, it give the verse then the explanation directly after the verse.

I was very impressed with the set up of the book and the easy flow of the context. It was very easy to find the verses and if you were looking for a certain verse you could easily thumb through and find it very quickly. I would recommend this volume to others and look forward to purchase other volumes of the set.
