Publisher's Summary

Ezra and Nehemiah tell the story of those who return to Judah to rebuild the temple and Jerusalem. In fact, little more than 40,000 people return, only about 10% of the Jewish population in the Persian Empire. Esther tells the story of the 90% who remain behind. This is a fabulous story - and Dr. Creasy tells us the “X-rated” version!

A Wonderful Bible Study.

Dr. Bill Creasy is an exceptional teacher. The lectures are both informative and entertaining. I am so pleased to have come across these audio books and definitely plan to purchase more of them.

Best Bible Study

I often look to Dr Creasy's Bible studies to dig into geopolitical, linguistic, historical and cultural meanings that are lacking in other studies. This helps me ground my exegesis in its broad context. One example of Dr Creasy's exegesis is the pivotal verse 5:4 in which he explains the first letter of the Hebrew words spell "YHWH", a subtle acknowledgement of God's presence in the shadows of the story. But a less well-explained is his interpretation of 1:11 of "wearing *only* the royal crown". I have heard this interpretation before, but don't see that the text supports it. If it's more obvious in the Hebrew, it needs to be highlighted. Overall however, I appreciate the details and explanations offered by Dr Creasy.

Great reading of Esther

Dr. Creasy does a great job reading Esther through character development and tying in other books of the Bible.

Esther is an index to Biblical times

Get your notebooks out from the beginning. Dr Creasy really helped me with dates of kings, the sacking & rebuilding and by whom, of Jerusalem and the king knives names. Listening Esther that era to help me understand how it fit together.

Great lecture series!

This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
