Steveson describes the historical setting, analyzes the principal characters, and relates the structure and themes of each of these Old Testament books: Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. Using verse-by-verse exposition, he points out key Hebrew and Aramaic words, important principles, and practical applications. He take textual variances into account, interacts with a broad range of pertinent scholarship, and presents conservative interpretations for even problematic sections.
