God's Word for Today: Ezra and Nehemiah is the little Bible study I wrote on Ezra and Nehemiah for Concordia Publishing House. Right now CPH has it on sale for $4 a copy. Go grab a copy! Here are some details from CPH's write up: Ezra and Nehemiah describe the final events of the Old Testament period, approximately four centuries before the birth of Christ. Ezra begins with the decree of Cyrus, then recounts the return of the exiles from Babylon and the rebuilding of the Jerusalem temple. Nehemiah records his return to Jerusalem with the third wave of returning exiles and concludes his book with the rebuilding of the city's walls.
