The Pulpit Commentary: Esther


Funk & Wagnalls 1909

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Far more than just a simple commentary, it provides an unrivalled range of homiletic helps that go a long way toward presenting the biblical text in a Sunday school lesson, sermon, or Bible study.

The Pulpit Commentary covers Esther, with at least three treatments of every verse:


  • Commentary on the passage, with exegetical, interpretive, theological, historical, and geographical observations. Written by the author of that volume.


  • A guide for preaching or teaching through the passage, with personal application, devotional insights, and observations about the rhetorical structure of the passage. Written by the author of that volume.


  • Actual sermons from various contributors, covering a couple of verses or a pericope. Typically, a brief introduction followed by 2-5 "points" with a number of references to other passages that provide biblical context.

Taken together, the three treatments of each passage provide a detailed outline of key concepts in the passage, while imparting a rich sense of biblical context—context of both the immediate book and the larger themes of Scripture.

Praise for the Print Edition

I have used the paper version of the Pulpit Commentary for over 20 years. It is and continues to be my primary commentary for all my messages. I appreciate its scholarly work and the simplicity and power of its commentaries. I have also been an avid user of Logos since its inception and often wished that this commentary would find its way into the [digital] library.
