    Brilliant

    I found the book historically accurate and quotes from the bible are really helpful. It was spiritually uplifting and helped me to reflect on my life and how I relate to God and others. It made me think about forgiveness and how forgiveness can affect my life.

    This is an absolutely fabulous biblical novel!

    It is very obvious that Lynn Austin spent a LOT of time studying scripture. She also had to have studied historical records and customs of the time in preparation for writing this wonderful book. This is the second book in what I consider to be a “true” series. By that I mean that you should read the first book before picking this one up. There is really only one character from the first book that I remember. But reading book one will help to set the stage historically for this novel. I was quickly captivated by the main characters in each location at the start of the story. I thoroughly enjoyed reading how each of their individual lives intersected with the others. I have read the story of Esther a number of times and heard some sermons from it. I have never “seen” such a vivid account of what life was like for the Jews in the months after the decree was written calling for their annihilation. That is truly what it seemed like to me. I could see their despair and feel their fear and heartache. Then after the Thirteenth of Adar each of the survivors had to figure out how to deal with the outcome. Were they going to accept what God had allowed to happen? Or were they going to spend the rest of their lives blaming Him and hating their enemies from that day? The stories of redemption and forgiveness are beautifully interwoven and presented. At the same time Ezra is searching the Torah doing all that he can to interpret the law of God so that the Jewish nation can be built up and follow God faithfully. The biggest question that he had to deal with was, “How can man find God’s balance between judgment and mercy?”

    Story of Ezra brought to life

    This is the second in the Restoration Chronicles series and is an amazing book. God is in control even when circumstances say otherwise and I needed to be reminded of that!

    Another great book.

    Another excellent book by Lynn Austin that brings sections of the Old Testament to life. Inspirational, wonderful insights into how life may have been for those living during these times. Recommend read for anyone interested in the Old Testament or the history prior to Jesus' birth.
