Ruth, Jonah, Esther Author: Eugene F Roop Publisher: Believers church Bible commentary. English View all editions and formats Summary: In three of the Bible's most compelling short stories, Eugene F. Roop draws attention to the distinctive narrative characteristics of these magnificent dramas. Such scrutiny opens new vistas of interpretation that can undergird the faith, life, and neighborly relations of the church. As we enter the world of these struggles and events, we will experience in the stories sorrow and laughter, hope and loyalty, and God's mercy and grace.

Frequently bought together
I picked up this RJE for a four-week series through Ruth. I've found this commentary to be quite helpful.
The BCBC format, with excursive essays gathered in an appendix, provides a depth of background that many other short commentaries don't seem able to include. An excu I'm not quite sure where to shelve this volume.
An excursus of any length disrupts the flow of the text. Some, like the Belief series, meet this with text boxes. This is a good start.
Believers Church Bible Commentary
RJE is a pastoral commentary, drawing on enough scholarship to keep the preacher informed, but not delving deeply into every linguistic or historical feature of the text. I think it gets the balance about right. I do wish the concluding "Text in Biblical Context" and "Text in the Life of the Church" sections at the end of each chapter were a bit more robust. Roop seems to have opted for "safer" options for most of these concluding topical reflections on the action of Ruth's story. Overall, a good commentary to keep on the shelf. I'll look forward to using whenever I next preach in Jonah or Esther.
