Ruth: The King Is Coming (Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament | ZECOT)

, 2015
ISBN: 9780310555698



Designed for the pastor and Bible teacher, the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament brings together commentary features rarely gathered together in one volume. With careful discourse analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, the authors trace the flow of argument in each Old Testament book, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what they say.

In Ruth, Daniel I. Block continues providing the powerful exegetical commentary that the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary series has offered on other books of the Bible. Written primarily for the pastor and Bible teacher, the text succinctly exegetes each passage of Scripture in its grammatical and historical context. Each passage of Ruth is interpreted in the light of its biblical setting, with a view of grammatical detail, literary context, flow of biblical argument, and historical setting.

Daniel I. Block

Dr. Daniel Block, professor of Old Testament at Wheaton College, has been teaching God’s Word for more than 30 years.

It has been a special joy for Dr. Block to watch students, who often take introductory courses in Old Testament only because they are required to do so by the curriculum, suddenly awaken to the fact that the Old Testament is understandable and its message is both life-giving and relevant for modern, everyday life.

Dr. Block has published a number of books and essays in scholarly journals. The paradigm for his research and ministry is set by Ezra, as described in Ezra 7:10: he committed himself to the study the Torah of Yahweh, to put it into practice, and to teach his revealed will in Israel. This means constantly asking serious questions of the Scriptures: What does the text say? Why does the text say it like that? What did the text mean to the original audience? What does the text have to say to me today? In order to answer these questions, one needs to understand both the worlds out of which the biblical texts arose and the worlds in which modern people live.

    This commentary is amazing and is in my top three commentaries for Ruth. The commentary itself gets five stars. The problem is that the editor (either on Zondervan's side or Logos' side) mixed up the chapter heading so it is sometimes difficult and confusing to make your way through. For instance, when I go to chapter three, it says "Chapter 4" above it and then goes on to comment on chapter 3. This needs to be fixed.
