For over 15 years, and with several significant works, Hugh Williamson contributed to the movement to recapture the importance of the biblical books of Chronicles, Ezra and Nehemiah. The most important of his historical and exegetical studies are collected together here for the first time, providing the scholar of the post-exilic period with a valuable resource in furthering research on this formative period in early Jewish history.
