Esther &Ruth (Reformed Expository Commentary)
Does God help those who help themselves? That may seem to be the message of Esther and Ruth. Yet a closer reading shows a gracious and sovereign God at work, one who uses obviously flawed people—unable even to help themselves—to rescue his people and prepare for the coming of Christ.

I loved this expository commentary on these two books! Duguid does an excellent job of digging into the original Hebrew to bring the New Testament into the Old. These are two of the most well known and beloved stories in the Old Testament, and yet they are so so shallowly understood when we rip them out of the context of their time and cultures.
In my opinion it just doens't get much better than Duguid when it comes to preaching Christ from the Old Testament. I read this commentary as a companion to my daily bible reading and was regularly stirred to think and feel more deeply about Christ. Highly Recommend.
