Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Old Testament book of Ezra proclaims the importance of right worship and the need to endure patiently in the face of difficulty. Nehemiah continues the story with an inspiring account of returning to faithfulness and doing God's work, no matter what. By studying Ezra and Nehemiah, we have a true testimony to how God sovereignly works through people to accomplish His redemptive purposes.

Series Copy:

Christians have a lifelong goal: to become like Christ. This involves change, and change isn’t always easy. But the more a person knows of God’s purposes for him or her, the more that person can experience His joy and participate in His plan.

The LifeChange series of Bible studies on books of the Bible can help you grow in Christlikeness through a life-changing encounter with God’s Word. You’ll benefit in these important ways:

* You’ll gain a firm understanding of the book—its historical context, purpose, structure, and meaning

* You’ll apply its powerful, relevant wisdom to needs and issues you’re currently working through

* You’ll acquire personal study skills and a thirst to return to the book and go deeper into its life-transforming truths

Synopsis:

By studying these records of God's faithfulness, you'll be pointed to truths throughout Scripture of how you are to act.

Synopsis:

Don't let the fear of disappointment keep you from having a hopeful heart.

Synopsis:

Are you afraid to hope? Hope holds out the alluring promise of the good that is yet to come. But what happens when your longing is met with unrealized requests, disease, severed friendships, infertility, singleness, lost passion, wayward children, or the sheer repetition of life? Many women forego the promise of hope in order to avoid the pain that disappointment or loss often brings. Hope can be painful, yet we need it to continue. While refusing to dream may protect us from unmet expectations, it can also keep us from experiencing the beauty God is creating in our lives. Where do we find the courage to anticipate the future God has promised? “We either respond to hope with our hearts,” says Jan Meyers, “or we try to push it down. Responding to hope brings a deepened sense of thirst and ache, but it reminds us what it truly means to be a woman.” Meyers’ refreshingly honest and compassionate look at both sides of hope will help you find the courage to keep seeking-even in those places where hope seems to have been destroyed. And while hope is never without risk, its transcending power can make you more fully alive.

Synopsis:
