The book of Esther has been preserved in ancient texts that diverge greatly from each other; as a result, Jews and Protestants usually read a version which is shorter than that of most Catholic or Orthodox Bibles. Jon Levenson capably guides readers through both versions, demonstrating their coherence and their differences.

The Old Testament Library provides fresh and authoritative treatments of important aspects of Old Testament study through commentaries and general surveys. The contributors are scholars of international standing.

Jon D. Levenson is Albert A. List Professor of Jewish Studies at Harvard Divinity School in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is the author of many books, including Resurrection and the Restoration of Israel: The Ultimate Victory of the God of Life and (with Kevin J. Madigan).
