Barry G. Webb.  Five Festal Garments.  Downers Grove, IL: InterVarsity Press, March 26th, 2001.  151 pp.

5 out of 5

Purchase: Westminster Amazon

This book is on a Christian examination of five books in the Old Testament that are most neglected in the Bible: The Song of Solomon, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes and Esther.  If you want to learn more about these five books and gain rich insights on them then this volume is worth getting.  This work is a part of the New Studies in Biblical Theology series edited by D.A.
