"Memoirs of the Way Home" by Gerald M. Bilkes is one of the most helpful commentaries I have read in a long time. It focuses on the books of Ezra and Nehemiah in the Bible, and I think (personally, at least) these are two books in the Bible that can easily get lost in the shuffle.
I actually just read another great book that went along with Nehemiah, so I was more familiar with that book of the Bible than Ezra. I've read both of these books a couple of times in my life but didn't really comprehend them. Bilkes does a fantastic job of going through each chapter of these books and making the information easy to understand but not overwhelming. Both of these books of the Bible relate to our lives if we take the time to understand them.
I'll be reading this book again in the future, to make sure I got everything possible with it. I read it alone the first time but the second time I'll read the scripture with it and go a little slower. I do recommend this book.
Thank you to Cross Focused Reviews and Reformation Heritage Books for a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.
