Memoirs of the Way Home: Ezra and Nehemiah as a Call to Conversion
1 in stock
In this winsome Bible study, with questions for individual or group reflection at the end of each chapter, the author introduces readers to the lesser-known Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah. He helps us understand that these are not the records of historic feats but rather the confessions of a humble prodigal on a profoundly spiritual journey home.
With pastoral warmth, Bilkes demonstrates these biblical memoirs' relevance for us today as they challenge us to consider whether we are in the far country or, by grace, on our way back home to God.
"Few people know the history of Ezra and Nehemiah and their God-given work to re-establish Israel in the Promised Land after their Babylonian exile... Readers will certainly benefit from this simple exploration of the many rich and vital truths that we find in Ezra and Nehemiah and the way Gerald Bilkes connects them to Christ and the church."?
