We have just published two new Bible Briefs to our Seminary Website (click here
). Both are excellent, and it was great fun to be the editor of each booklet. We have 1 & 2 Chronicles
by Dr. Steven S. Tuell (click here
for PDF download) and the book of Esther
by Dr. Sidnie White Crawford (click here
for PDF download). Brief author bios appear below. Enjoy!

The recipient of numerous awards for teaching excellence, he is also a prolific author, whose works include a study of Ezekiel in the Harvard Semitic Monographs Series, a commentary on the books of Chronicles in the Interpretation Series, and most recently, a commentary on Ezekiel published by Hendrickson in 2008.
