Commentaries on the Historical Books

The Old Testament contains many historical books: Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 & 2 Samuel, 1 & 2 Kings, 1 & 2 Chronicles, Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther. A commentary will help you understand the historical context and how these books contribute to the unfolding history of salvation, so you can understand the Bible and preach or teach it well.
Our curated range of commentaries on the historical books contains academic commentaries as well as those that are easier for ordinary lay Christians to read. You can view commentaries for specific books of the Bible—or from a particular commentary series—using the product filters.
