Books of Ezra and Nehemiah by R.J. Coggins

Book Description

Unlike the First and Second Books of the Chronicles, the Books of Ezra and Nehemiah have received considerable attention; partly because their presentation is more attractive, but more importantly because they illuminate a period of history about which very little is known: Jerusalem in the context of the Persian domination of South-West Asia from 539 to 336 B.C. In other respects, however, there are striking similarities between these books, textually, linguistically and theologically: the opening of Ezra repeats the end of 2 Chronicles, suggesting that the works were originally continuous and possibly by the same hand or hands; and there is constantly a theological motivation in the recording of 'historical' events.

Introducing the Old Testament by R.J. Coggins Introducing the Old Testament, Hardback (December 1989)

Study of the Old Testament has long been dominated by what is sometimes called the 'historical-critical method'. Is this approach the only proper one and are there alternative understandings which are equally valid? This book attempts to outline some alternatives while retaining the values of the traditional methods.

First and Second Books of Esdras by R.J. Coggins First and Second Books of Esdras, Paperback (June 1979)

The two books of the Apocrypha treated here have little in common apart from the attribution of their authorship to Ezra (Esdras in Greek), the 'second founder' of Judaism.

First and Second Books of the Chronicles by R.J. Coggins First and Second Books of the Chronicles, Paperback (April 1976)

The Chronicles, divided into two books purely for convenience, have long suffered from neglect.
