In his introduction, author Gerald Bilkes explains, “Few people realize that the magnificent New Testament narrative of repentance and forgiveness is etched into the fabric of the whole Bible, and not least of all into those books that concern Israel’s return from exile.” In this winsome Bible study, with questions for individual or group reflection at the end of each chapter, the author introduces readers to the little-known Old Testament books of Ezra and Nehemiah and demonstrates that they are an expanded version of the story of the prodigal son, preaching the same message of conversion. With pastoral warmth, Bilkes guides his readers home through the memoirs of a prodigal people returning to their God.
Author Gerald M. Bilkes is professor of New Testament and biblical theology at Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids.

Author J. Stephen Yuille is the pastor of Grace Community Church, Glen Rose, Texas.Endorsement “This book is an accessible and challenging introduction to the pastoral office and its duties as understood by the Puritans. In an age when the notion of office is either downplayed or understood in a confused manner, the Puritans still have the power to speak with force and clarity. Dr. Yuille has done us a great service in producing such a work.” — Carl R. Trueman, Paul Woolley Professor of Church History, Westminster Theological Seminary, Pa.
“Rare it is to find a book that pulls together the pastoral wisdom of a Puritan divine like Swinnock and distills it down into manageable units that are easily digestible. But this is precisely what Yuile has done in this volume. He has surveyed one of the best from the golden age of the Puritans, Swinnock, and has extracted he core teaching from this classic writing on pastoral duty. To learn from this divine is to be well-taught in ministerial responsibilities. By reading this work and implementing it in your life, I believe that you will be better equipped for your service for Jesus Christ.” – Steven J. Lawson, senior pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, Alabama
