Where is God when the world falls apart, when he doesn’t seem to care?
Ezekiel brought God’s word to his people at the lowest point in their history, suffering the trauma of exile. But with exile comes the opportunity to renew their faith and hope in God himself. Although God had judged his people, he would also restore them and dwell with them forever – promises which find their ultimate fulfilment in Christ.
Antony Billington’s six-session guide, with his astute mini-features, skillful questions, and timely notes, will help you explore how Ezekiel’s message of challenge and comfort speaks today, enabling you to live in the light of God’s presence, Monday through Sunday – whatever you’re facing.
