This volume of the Navarre Bible commentaries unlocks the mysteries of a wide-ranging sequence of Old Testament books: the historical books of Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Maccabees and the little-known but pivotally important books of Tobit, Judith, and Esther. In these books you'll find the rich and instructive stories of Kings David and Solomon, the Babylonian exile, and its aftermath; the heroism of the Maccabees who gave their lives to preserve their faith in God; and the deep faith and awareness of divine blessing that invests the books of Tobit, Judith, and Esther.
This sturdy hardcover contains the complete Latin and English texts of each book; commentary based on the writings of the great saints and doctors of the Church; charts and maps; and material on each books historical and Biblical context.
