Sessions with Ezra & Nehemiah is a ten-session study unit designed to explore the story and theological themes associated with the Israelites’ return from exile. Each session is followed by a thought-provoking page of questions that allow for a deeper experience of the scriptural passages. These resource pages can be used by seminar leaders during preparation and group discussion, as well as in individual Bible study.
Ezra and Nehemiah address questions that continue to be relevant for believers today: How does a religious group embody their faith as a minority movement in a larger, pluralistic culture? How do church leaders guide people of faith to develop courage and holiness? Ezra and Nehemiah also provide encouragement to churches who struggle with the nostalgia of their past even as they move forward into their future, as well as those moving from disordered chaos to spiritual community.
The Sessions Series is a set of Bible studies designed to encourage a deeper encounter with Scripture. Each volume includes eight to ten lessons as well as resources to facilitate preparation, class discussion, or individual Bible Study. The Sessions series editor is Michael D. McCullar.
