Top Five Commentaries on Ezra-Nehemiah

Ligonier Ministries has a list and discussion of their top five commentaries on Ezra-Nehemiah. I would replace the briefer works of Kidner and McConville with Blenkinsopp (OTL) and Thrtontveit (Int). I would also add Yamauchi (EBC) to the runners-up list. In any case, the top five Keith Mathison has listed are:

1. F. Charles Fensham -- The Books of Ezra and Nehemiah (New International Commentary on the Old Testament, 1983).
2. H.G.M. Williamson -- Ezra/Nehemiah (Word Biblical Commentary, 1985).
3. Derek Kidner. -- Ezra & Nehemiah (Tyndale Old Testament Commentaries 1979).
4. Mervin Breneman -- Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther (New American Commentary, 1993).
5. J. G. McConville -- Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther (Daily Study Bible, 1985).
