Details

By analyzing the elements of narrative and the historical background of Ezra and Nehemiah, Israel Loken explains how and why God’s people rebuilt Jerusalem and changed their way of worship. Loken examines the views of other scholars before drawing persuasive conclusions about what convinced God’s people to follow Him, once again, with their entire beings. Loken then tells us what the characters and events in Ezra and Nehemiah teach us about worship, life, and God. This rare combination makes this contribution both scholastic and applicable.

The 44-volume Evangelical Exegetical Commentary series incorporates the latest in biblical scholarship and is written from an evangelical perspective. It combines historical, literary, and theological explanations with ideas for applying the Bible to everyday life.
