“The Photo Companion for Ezra brings the events of the book to life. Whether it is observing the Feast of Booths in Ezra 3 or celebrating the completion of the temple in Ezra 6, this collection allows readers to immerse themselves in the narrative as they study the biblical text. This amazing assortment of visual aids provides a valuable resource that just cannot be found in modern commentaries.”
