"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

Soooo, why did I buy another book on Esther and Ruth? That's easy, our senior Pastor is preaching through Esther this summer. He purchased some commentaries on Esther and just to make shipping costs reasonable he had the warehouse throw in this copy of Esther by Iain Duguid. He told me this was the greatest surprise of his life.
He said this book was worth the price of all the others combined. Well, it got my attention because I have never even heard of Iain Duguid.
I previewed the other Pastor's copy and was hooked from the opening chapter. I had to have my own copy. I ordered it and impatiently waited for it to arrive. I devoured the book as soon as I got it. I'm now and Iain Duguid fan.
He took a subject that I am familiar with and gave me new insights, new provoking thoughts to consider and shook some of my beliefs about the books to their roots. I will now be looking over my lesson plans and readdressing some areas, shoring up some thoughts and making huge improvements.
Thank you Iain for a very well done commentary. I enjoyed it so much I eagerly ordered Iain's commentary on Daniel.
If you are going to do a serious study of Esther or Ruth this book IS A MUST!
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.".
