Ezra & Nehemiah: The Good Hand of Our God is Upon Us (Paperback)
The Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah offer a timeless message of hope to Christians, reminding us that Jesus came to set us free from our own Babylonian captivity by becoming the true temple, living Word, and the One who is preparing a city where the walls are perfectly pure and secure. In this eleven-lesson Bible study, Sarah Ivill provides students of Scripture with an in-depth look at these two small books filled with great truths which will encourage them to trust that the good hand of God is on them.
Each lesson includes the following features:
- An introduction that provides a big picture of the lesson, showing how it applies to your head, heart, and hands.
- A personal study section of questions that helps you dig deeply into God’s Word.
- A section that puts it all together, which aims to answer any lingering questions you may have after your personal study.
- A section of questions for helping students study the Word of God in community.
Useful for either individual or group studies, Ezra & Nehemiah: The Good Hand of Our God is Upon Us is an overview of the history of redemption and revelation and an overview of what it means to study Christ in all of Scripture.

Deep yet accessible, instructive and reverent, rigorous and rewarding, this study of God’s Word will delight you in the Christ of Scripture—the one Savior, Shepherd, and covenant King. — David and Minda Garner, Westminster Theological Seminary
Many times we read the Old Testament disconnected from the work of Christ. In her new Bible study Ezra and Nehemiah: The Good Hand of Our God Is upon Us, Sarah Ivill helps us understand these books in their historical context but also faithfully points us to the larger story—the one all the other stories point to—the redemptive work of Christ on our behalf. This guide will help you study Ezra and Nehemiah with new insight and application for how you think, what you love, and how you live. — Melissa Kruger, author of In All Things: A Nine-Week Study Guide on Unshakeable Joy
