What some have said about The Golden Sceptre...
"…I couldn’t put it down!"
Ron Giannetto, Founder/Director, Little Red Book Ministry. Greece, New York
"…It seems every doctrine of the Bible is brought to life through…this book. I am reading it through for the second time."
Robert Testa, MSEE, MSEd. ITT Space Systems. Clarendon, New York
"Pastor Leib has written a wonderful devotional commentary on the typology of the book of Esther as applied to the New Testament Christian. He has some refreshing insights from the unique perspective of a saved Jew who is also a fundamental, King James Bible believer, a very rare combination in this day and age. Unlike more scholarly works, Brother Leib communicates in a relaxed preaching style that is easy reading for Christians of all backgrounds. I highly recommend it to all teachers and preachers of the Scriptures."
David Cagle, Director, King James Bible Society, Bible Baptist Church. Pensacola, Florida
"…The Golden Sceptre (is) a true labor of love which I will cherish for its richness and edification. I have, and will continue to use it in my portion of God’s vineyard."
Frank R. Whitson, Bible Teacher. The Cincinnatian Barber Shop. Cincinnati, Ohio
"‘The Golden Sceptre’ reflects an enormous amount of thinking which is the missing element in the average Christian and preacher today. This work is rich with types, which work demands much thinking, so that, although I have read this book with great interest, it is worthy of many more pursuits into this wealthy mine in order that the full treasure might be enjoyed…. Dr. Bob Leib has proven himself a fine Bible student and author and I look forward to reading his next literary venture."
Dr. Gerald Sutek B.D., Th.M, Th.D., Ph.D. S.W.A.T Team for Christ. Missionary, Romania
"This book is a great read for the serious student who particularly enjoys Bible typology. Pastor Leib comments on the scripture from different angles and takes the reader from the kitchen to the throne room. There is also plenty of devotional application and a few doctrinal nuggets."
Pastor David Walker, Author: The Bible Believer’s Guide To Dispensationalism. Calvary Baptist Church. Monticello, Fl.
"The Golden Sceptre…for layman and scholar alike. Obviously written to be a blessing to the children of God."
Pastor Don Alexander, Author:The Laodicean Church…A Look At Ourselves. Delaware, Ohio
“This is a thorough exposition of a much neglected part of the Bible. It is not a ‘quick read’, but it is a worthwhile one.”
Street Preacher, Manhattan, New York
"I have read the book with interest, and find it written from a somewhat different perspective, that is, the Jewish point of view. It is rich in the prophetic and symbolic meanings, which are many times overlooked by Gentile authors. The Golden Sceptre should be a valued sermon starter and application source for minister and layman alike."
Pastor H. Don Glenn. Southaven, Mississippi
"The book was truly thought provoking and spiritually stimulating. I was blessed throughout the reading, and had many opportunities to ponder the tour of Esther’s kingdom. This has opened up many doors of understanding, not only to the book of Esther but to the entire Bible."
Pastor Jeff Hite, Lighthouse Independent Baptist Church. Altoona, Pennsylvania
"This book…is one of the best that I've read on biblical typology. It, along with his first book, At His Feet, will greatly enlighten the reader regarding the difference between the kingdom of heaven and the kingdom of God as typified in the books of Ruth and Esther. A great study for any true student of the word of God."
Sal Galioto, Missionary, Italy
"Pastor Leib’s book, The Golden Sceptre, is a treasure of scriptural typology as well as doctrinal and devotional application. The Holy Spirit declares the Scriptures to have been given by inspiration of God for the purposes of doctrine, reproof, correction and instruction in righteousness. The Golden Sceptre fulfills all these categories and it is plain that Brother Leib poured his heart into the book."
Pastor Kyle Stephens, Blessed Hope Baptist Church. Coon Rapids, MN
"I just finished reading it for a second time. I must confess that I thoroughly enjoyed it…."
"The Golden Sceptre is an insightful book of allegorical types and shadows that actually transform the historical characters of Esther into New Testament truth. This unique style of doctrinal teaching helps the mind of the reader to grow in spiritual understanding and discernment. It is a book that exalts the precious words of God, and will help any believer come to know, the intimacy, love, and protection that Jesus Christ has for His bride, is the same, the Father has for Israel."
George Calvas, Street Preacher. Sr. Engineer, Ford Research. Dearborn, Michigan

"Great reading, my brother. My dear mother has finished both of them [The Golden Sceptre and At His Feet] and is hungry for more."

"Hey bro the book that you wrote on Esther is awesome...I cannot get that book outta my wifes hands even if I offer her money and you need to write more."
Johnny Tha Baptist, April 2011
Still learning more from "The Golden Sceptre". 'Bout 3/5 way through it again. Great book!!!!

Chard Bernick, Missionary, Alaska, April 2012
"Jam packed with sound doctrine and historically accurate, The Golden Sceptre is the best commentary I've ever read on the book of Esther. This book was entertaining because much of it is written in a play format. I also enjoyed the songs and poems that were included. If you like the book of Esther, you will absolutely love this book. In my opinion, every Christian should have this book in their Christian library."
Cody Watters, Baptist1611.com, July 2012
"'The Golden Sceptre' is a wonderful and very informative book. The author did a masterful job of dissecting each verse to show in type how the story of Esther relates to our Christian lives today. It is a perfect mixture of 'milk and meat.' This is a must read for any student of the word of God."
Pastor Charles Crowder, December, 2012
"Bro. Bob's "The Golden Sceptre" should be in EVERY christian's library. This book is especially relevant to today. Recent false doctrines (by men like Texe Marrs) have very stupidly and ignorantly painted the book of Esther and the historical accounts of Mordecai and King Ahasuerus as something EVIL. But Bro. Bob's book clearly sets the record straight by illustrating the lessons we can learn and its scriptural typologies. Bro. Bob's Jewish roots make this book especially important for him. As he has laid out how the Lord works with BOTH the Jew and the Gentile and how Vashti and Esther figure-in to this lesson. I am still reading my copy, but I can honestly say before I reach its end that.YOU NEED THIS BOOK! Thanks Bro. Bob, for the great time, effort and HEART that you poured into this important study."

"Well I just finished reading your book, The Golden Sceptre. Really enjoyed it, brother. I have always enjoyed reading Esther every time through my Bible but I will never look at it quite the same way from now on. I was taken by how you interwove the book spiritually with seemingly every part of the Bible. But then again it is representative of our Holy Bible itself. I have long since come to realize our Bible is one organic whole rather than a collection of stories woven together by our Lord. You reached deep into the Spiritual connections of many different parts of the Greatest Story Ever Told. Great read my dear friend. God Bless."
Dwane Karr, Street Preacher. January 24, 2014
"Looking for a good book to read? I read the Golden Sceptre by Dr. Bob Leib and it was a breath of fresh air. This is a must read and a book that you should add to your collection."
Pastor Chad Reese, Lighthouse Baptist Church, Lincoln Park, Michigan. September 3, 2016
"Well, I finished Bro. Bob Leib's 'The Golden Septre' and am about to start it again. Not that I didn't comprehend the material, I took it slow as recommend and had no problem understanding, it's just that I enjoyed it so much! His writing style and approach make It very easy and enjoyable to follow along. Bro. Bob fits puzzle pieces together so beautifully into a puzzle I never saw. I have 'mind blown' moments in every chapter! Seriously Bob, you need to write another book! He has given me an excitement about studying biblical typology that was not there before and I truly look forward to studying deeper. I had a lot of fun with the footnotes as well. Reading this really does feel like studying with an old friend. (Be sure to check out footnote 99!) I'm also interested in making his recipe for potato latkes in chapter 18! This book has been a blessing in my walk and I thank God for letting Bob and I cross paths."
