More Information

The book of Ezra deals with building the second temple, restoring the worship of Yahweh, and breaking the habits that undermined Israel's spiritual integrity. In Hope Amidst Ruin, A. Philip Brown II analyzes the book's use of chronology, plot, and point of view, demonstrating that Ezra composed this historical narrative to teach postexilic Israel about the goodness and holiness of their God. The themes of hope and holiness flow throughout the book as the Returnees learn anew of God's promises to the just and of His wrath against those who abandon Him. Purification and separation from evil is necessary for the Israelites to be restored to true fellowship with Yahweh. Brown's extensive research and thorough analysis make Hope Amidst Ruin a valuable resource for the library of any Bible scholar.
