By Israel Drazin TOP 1000 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on September 19, 2015
Format: Hardcover
Carey A. Moore, the author of the highly praised Anchor Bible commentary on the biblical book Esther collected 37 scholarly articles on Esther which he placed in a book, many of which would not otherwise be available. He includes his own 81 page Prolegomenon with notes and extensive bibliography.

Maimonides (1138-1204) “rated it after the Pentateuch while Martin Luther felt the book should never have been written because it has “much pagan impropriety.” Some people were bothered that the Persian king, for example, “is mentioned 190 times in 167 verses, yet the Lord God of Israel is not mentioned even once,” nor is any Jewish law or practice, or even the Torah. The following are some ides mentioned in the 37 articles:

Very helpful, and detailed. He gives much background information which is so helpful. His attention to the specific meanings of words, is of great benefit.
