The books of Ezra and Nehemiah are commonly the least studied of the Old Testament Histories. Rev. Dr. Andrew E. Steinmann humbly seeks to remedy this, by offering a comprehensive, original translation of both books. From the rebuilding of the temple in Ezra to the creation of the wall of Jerusalem in Nehemian, this commentary highlights the watershed events in the post-exilic history of Israel presented in these books along with their implications for teaching and preaching today. Steinmann gives particular attention to the themes of ceremonial holiness and Israel’s received holiness as the nation set apart by God.
