Ezra is rarely if ever preached on. Haggai gets even shorter shrift: if anything, Haggai 1 is pressed into service to encourage a reluctant congregation to give to an ailing fabric fund. But the message of these books, and their emphasis on building for God and the need of obedience to his Word and openness to his Spirit, is one which needs to be heard clearly today. This commentary by Robert Fyall highlights the contemporary parallels of the challenges Israel faced to those of today's church and demonstrates the relevance of the books of Ezra and Haggai for God's people in all times. With passage-by-passage exposition of the biblical text, this resource will be helpful for pastors, teachers and anyone who wants to dive deeper into these seldom discussed Old Testament books.

Fyall's foremost goal in The Message of Ezra & Haggai is to convey a faithful understanding of God's purposes and God's people (p. 17). He accomplishes this broad goal successfully through a systematic study of the historical/religious events recorded in Ezra and Haggai and their corresponding spiritual significance. Though Fyalls purpose is not ground-breaking scholarship, this study does contribute significantly to the discussion about how the spiritual messages of the ancient books apply to the modern Christian.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0830824324, Paperback)

Ezra is rarely if ever preached on. Haggai gets even shorter shrift: if anything, Haggai 1 is
pressed into service to encourage a reluctant congregation to give to an ailing fabric fund.
But the message of these books, and their emphasis on building for God and the need of
obedience to his Word and openness to his Spirit, is one which needs to be heard clearly
today.

This commentary by Robert Fyall highlights the contemporary parallels of the challenges Israel faced to those of today's church and demonstrates the relevance of the books of Ezra and Haggai for God's people in all times. With passage-by-passage exposition of the biblical text, this resource will be helpful for pastors, teachers and anyone who wants to dive deeper into these seldom discussed Old Testament books.
