Do you know much about Ezra and Nehemiah?
Memoirs of the Way Home, by Gerald M. Bilkes, is a Bible study based on them. This study shows how important they were and how their teachings and ideas can be applied in our lives today.
There are study questions at the end of each chapter and lots of Bible verses to support his text.
About the author- Gerald M. Bilkes is currently a professor of New Testament and biblical theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary.
My thoughts- I really enjoyed reading and learning about Ezra and Nehemiah in Memoirs of the Way Home, by Gerald M. Bilkes.
When I read a nonfiction book, I always enjoy having study questions at the end of each chapter. The questions at the end of each of the chapters in this book were really helpful for me to go over the chapter and figure out how to apply the information to my life.
I liked the part on Nehemiah the best, because I thought there was a lot more information given so that I would know how to apply it to my own life. My favorite chapter was, “Submitting to God’s Yoke,” because it discussed how we all need to work together and it has to be everyone. In the church nobody is too important to do the work and nobody is too insignificant. We all need to do the work.
I highly recommend this book to all adults. Please have your Bibles handy, so you can read the chapter in the Bible before you read it in the book.
