The book of Ezra concerns a special work of God, because it describes the Israelites’ movement from idolatry and exile into a home of faith in God. In this volume, Ironside shows how the story in Ezra describes not only Israelite history, but embodies the story of the church in every age—the transition from bondage to freedom, from decay to life, from exile to a home in God.

About Harry Allen Ironside
Harry Allen Ironside, one of the twentieth century’s greatest preachers, was born in Toronto, Canada on October 14, 1876. Though his education stopped with grammar school, his fondness for reading and a retentive memory put his learning to use. His scholarship was recognized in academic circles when he received honorary degrees from Wheaton College and Bob Jones University and was invited as frequent lecturer at Dallas Theological Seminary. Dr. Ironside was appointed to the boards of numerous Bible institutes, seminaries, and Christian organizations. He also served as director of the Africa Inland Mission. Ironside preached widely throughout the United States and abroad. He served as pastor of Moody Memorial Church from 1930 to 1948, and during his lifetime, he preached more than 7,000 sermons to over 1.25 million listeners.
