Eugene F. Roop focuses on three of the Bible's most compelling short stories, Ruth, Jonah, and Esther. He draws attention to distinctive narrative characteristics of these three magnificent dramas. Such scrutiny opens new vistas of interpretation that can undergird the faith, life, and neighborly relations of the church.

Each narrative features intense interaction among the characters and, in the case of Jonah, with God. As we enter the world of these struggles and events, Roop hopes we will experience in the narratives something of their sorrow and laughter, hope and faithful loyalty, and grasp of God's mercy and grace.

"Eugene F. Roop's work on Ruth, Jonah, and Esther is outstanding. Combining the best of recent scholarship with a high regard for the authority of Scripture, Roop makes us all grateful that these three short books have been preserved in the canon for our inspiration and edification." -- Daniel I. Block, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

"A well-informed, reliable guide to three often-missed biblical books. Highly commended as a user-friendly tool for pastors and teachers." -- Robert L. Hubbard Jr., North Park Theological Seminary
