What awaited the people of God who returned from exile? What awaited those who didn't? The books of Ezra, Nehemiah and Esther tell how the Jewish people - through faith, courage and persistence - overcame opposition, intimidation and the threat of genocide. Despite the efforts of their enemies, they rebuilt their lives and worshipped as a godly people once more. Today, the inspiring stories of Ezra the priest, Nehemiah the builder and Esther the queen encourage us to seek God and know that, come what may, he is our help and strength.
