"An amazing commentary! Rarely does an expositor demonstrate such virtuosity. But Iain Duguid brings it all together: a specialist's knowledge of the Hebrew text and culture, a preacher's eye for theme and structure, a pastor's skill in nuanced application, a theologian's grasp of Christ-centered theology (that would make Geerhardus Vos smile), and a wordsmith's attention to language and lingering metaphor. Duguid's Esther and Ruth will elevate and inspire generations of readers and preachers." --R. Kent Hughes, Pastor, College Church, Wheaton, Illinois
"This exposition of Esther and Ruth is 'a honeycomb, sweet to the soul and healing to the bones.' The author gives us a good dose of healing theology in a most relevant manner. From now on I will require my students to read this engaging commentary for their edification and delight." --Bruce K . Waltke, Professor of Old Testament, Reformed Theological Seminary, Orlando; Professor Emeritus of Biblical Studies, Regent College
"The authors of the Westminster Confession of Faith advised pastors to speak to both 'the necessities and capacities' of our people. This commentary series, which so well understands God's Word and God's people, greatly aids in that dual task of faithful preachers." --Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Theological Seminary

I would highly recommend it for any pastor who plans on spending time in a book of Esther, or a Bible student who needs to exegete for a class. I'm sure I'll find myself buying more of Duguid's commentaries in the future.
Just an FYI: Duguid's notes and commentary read more like a sermon manuscript than most commentaries. This may make the more researching-styled students read little more to get the notes he or she needs, but it doesn't hinder from the true expertise and well-researched notes that Duguid makes. While Duguid does keep his notes on a certain passage of a text down to a minimum, he isn't like most commentators who style their commentary very easily as in, "Verses 1 -3; Commentary.".
