    Judges and Ruth

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    by Mary J. Evans

    The book of Judges presents Israel’s need for deliverance and God’s use of flawed leaders to guide his chosen people through a dark period of their history. The book of Ruth tells a smaller story within this narrative, showing God quietly at work in the lives of a few individuals. This replacement Tyndale commentary places each book in its historical and canonical context, examines key theological themes, and addresses issues facing readers today.

    Ezekiel

    Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries

    by John B. Taylor

    John Taylor writes, "For most Bible readers Ezekiel is almost a closed book...Their knowledge of him extends little further than his mysterious vision of God's chariot-throne, with its wheels within wheels, and the vision of the valley of dry bones." However, the structure of Ezekiel is simple and orderly, and that makes it easy to analyze for modern readers.
