The books of Chronicles can be considered as supplementary to the books of kings, although sometimes the won't offer but repetitions. The books of Esdras regard the end of the Babylonian captivity, the rebuilding of the Temple, the founding of the Great Synagogue and the completion of the Old Testament Canon. Books following Esdras are mostly written in Greek. They are not included in the Hebrew Canon but they are respected and they are included in the Septuagint.

The book of Nehemiah narrates how this ruler tried to restore faith in God and bring social justice, neglecting his personal gain. The book of Tobit is about the appearance on earth and cooperation of angels with men, about marriage and family love. The book of Judith regards the courage by which Judith managed to save Israel from the Assyrian army. The book of Esther commemorates another act of God protecting Israel. The books of Maccabees regard Israel under the rule of Alexander's empire, their resistance against pagan authorities for their faith, and it's a book full of heroic acts revealing the value of martyrdom.

The book features a relatively large typeface, making its reading a pleasure. You may like to check this edition even if you already have the Septuagint in some other form.
