Memoirs of the Way Home

In his introduction, author Gerald Bilkes explains, “Few people realize that the magnificent New Testament narrative of repentance and forgiveness is etched into the fabric of the whole Bible, and not least of all into those books that concern Israel’s return from exile.” In this winsome Bible study, with questions for individual or group reflection at the end of each chapter, the author introduces readers to the little-known Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah and demonstrates that they are an expanded version of the story of the prodigal son, preaching the same message of conversion. With pastoral warmth, Bilkes guides his readers home through the memoirs of a prodigal people returning to their God.

What a wonderful study on the books of Ezra and Nehemiah.  Mr. Bilkes has done an in depth study of these books; An excellent tool that can be used individually or in a group.  complete with study questions after each reading.  I would not hesitate to use this book as a main study tool in teaching my Bible studies.  I like that he has chosen two books that many people skip over.  

This book should be a must have on anyone's book shelf.

I received this book free from  . I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 : “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
