The Second Book of The Chronicles
The Book of Chronicles is a Hebrew prose work, constituting part of Jewish and Christian scripture. These books were designed to sustain the hopes and prayers of God's people as they wait for God to fulfill his ancient promises. "Chronicles was a book of hope for its time. We will call the message of 1 and 2 Chronicles the 'gospel according to Ezra.'" - Winfried Corduan; Max Anders.
The Book of Ezra
"We are taken from ground level, with its distortions and limited vision, and given a view from above. At this clarifying distance, we see that life on earth is not directed by the whim of rulers or the might of armies, but by the determination of God. Viewpoint makes all the difference in the world. God's all-encompassing sovereignty and humanity's capacity for choice exist together. God—absolute and unrivalled in his actions and authority; man—free and responsible." - Max Anders, Knute Larson, Kathy Dahlen.
