Noted author Lynn Austin has produced an intriguing trilogy entitled
“Restoration Chronicles.” If you enjoy learning more about the struggles of the developing Jewish nation during one of the significant times of God’s chastising their rebellion and failure to follow His commands, you will be enthralled with the melding of the Jewish and Gentile viewpoints during the time of Ezra, Esther, Zechariah and Nehemiah. Return to Me introduces us to the struggles and discouragement experienced during the initial return to Jerusalem from exile in Babylon of a small portion of the Jewish community after Cyrus ascended to the throne following the defeat of the Babylonians by Persia.
Unfriendly neighbors and a harsh, uncared for environment discouraged their efforts to again establish worship of the true God by restoring the vigor and infrastructure of a devastated Jerusalem—let alone rebuild the dismantled Temple that had been their pride and glory as the Jewish worship center. Twenty years later the Temple had finally been rebuilt, but the remaining Jewish community in Babylon then faced total annihilation through the evil plans of Haman and others who wished to see the Jewish faith destroyed in book two, Keepers of the Covenant.
In the conclusion to this multi-generational effort, book three, On This Foundation, chronicles the rebuilding of the wall that was needed to protect and establish Jerusalem in its restoration as the center again of the mandated worship of the God who had chosen, protected, and led His people through these times of trial and turmoil. Another recent addition to the library selections is The Prisoner in the Third Cell, by Gene Edwards. One of the major personalities in the New Testament, John the Baptist, is presented in this short, dramatic and intriguing book. Caught in a web of political intrigue, John the Baptist is awaiting execution in a dark, dank cell and wondering if he was mistaken in thinking that Jesus of Nazareth was truly the long-awaited Messiah who would bring healing and wholeness to those who followed Him. Can a prisoner in these conditions actually experience the reality of being comforted by the realization of the Messiah’s incarnation?
