The Genesis to Revelation Series from Abingdon Press is a comprehensive verse-by-verse exploration of the books of the Bible, based on the NIV. Each study is 13-weeks long and engages participants by asking three questions: What does the Bible say?, What does the passage mean?, and How does the Scripture relate to my life?.
Study the books of Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther, beginning with return of the exiles as seen through the eyes of Ezra and Nehemiah, then moves through the story of Esther. Some of the major ideas explored are: the purity of heritage, building community, the importance of sanctuary, taking oaths, leadership qualities, the Book of Esther's inclusion in the Bible, and the shield of faith.
