Resources for Ezra
In our introduction to the new sermon series on Ezra, Renewal: Return from Exile, we covered a number of historical concepts that were new to many folks in Austin City Life. Here are a few resources to help you dig deeper into Ezra (from introductory to scholarly).
- A good entry level commentary on Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther
- A good technical commentary on Ezra, Nehemiah
- Simply Christian, good introduction to Christian Faith and Story of Scripture
- The Drama of Scripture, good introduction to the role of Israel in the Story of Scripture
- Sealed with an Oath, an in depth study of the biblical covenants
- God of Promise and the Life of Faith, a helpful explanation and application of biblical covenants. Here is the relevant chapter for free (thanks Scott)!
