by Woodrow E. Walton
As the strings on a guitar, each of the Five Scrolls – Song of Songs, Ruth, Lamentations, Ecclesiastes, and Esther – is a unique note, yet they can be played together like the five notes of a beautiful chord; each contributes to the whole as they unite to form a complete unit in this score of biblical music.
In the Hebrew Scripture, they comprise a single unit called the Five Festival Scrolls. In this well researched treatise, Dr. Woodrow E. Walton takes a look at these Five Scrolls as a single entity and asserts that although different in their totalities, they portray the whole of a person’s life and convey the Word of God through their distinct characters.
