RuthBy: Daniel L. Hawk
At last! A commentary series that combines the best of biblical scholarship with a passion for the message of the text. This series by the finest evangelical scholars is designed for students and pastors who are serious about understanding the Old Testament in its context and translating its message for the church in the twenty-first century. --Daniel Block Professor of Old Testament Wheaton College, Illinois
What every preacher and student needs is a commentary which makes positive use of the results of scholarly research while at the same time integrating them sympathetically into a contemporary Christian world-view. Many series have set out to achieve this, but few have succeeded. Now at last the Apollos series looks set to do so. --H. G. M. Williamson Regius Professor of Hebrew University of Oxford
This series rightly insists on rigorous scholarship but always in the service of the theology and message of the books of the Old Testament. Some outstanding scholars are signed up for this series and I look forward very much to having these commentaries on my shelves as they appear. --Craig Bartholomew Professor of Philosophy Redeemer University College, Ontario
