Book Review: Return to Me

A product was given for review for my honest opinion. No other compensation was given.


About the book: 

From the Acclaimed Author of Chronicles of the Kings

After decades of exile, the prophesies are coming true---King Cyrus has declared the Jews may return to Jerusalem. Iddo, a priest, is sure this is a sign of God's renewed favor. For too long they've remained in Babylon, and many, including Iddo's sons, are losing the faith that sets them apart. And so only a few choose to lea ve everything to return---return to their home and their God.

Nothing about their journey to the Promised Land is easy. As hardships mount, even the faithful, like Iddo's beloved wife, Dinah, question the sacrifice of following God's leading. Zechariah, Iddo's oldest grandson, feels torn between his grandfather's ancient beliefs and the family they left behind. But one life-changing encounter with the Holy One gives him insight that will change Zechariah---and history---forever.

Bringing the Old Testament to vibrant life, Return to Me tells the compelling story of two men living by faith in the midst of doubt, the women who love them, and the faithful remnant struggling to rebuild their lives in obedience to the God who beckons them home.

My Opinion
If you like to learn more about Bibles lessons and Bible history, then Return to Me is a MUST!

Return to Me brings to life the story of Zechariah and the Jews return to Jerusalem to rebuild the Temple. It was such an interesting look into life back then, Bible promises, and characters in the Bible that I would normally overlook if I was reading through these chapters in the Bible.

I loved re-reading these chapters in the Bible after reading Return to Me and really knowing the characters and realizing their part in the plan of Jesus return to Earth! It was also so refreshing and comforting to realize that people that long ago faced many of the struggles, troubles and sins that we experience today. And with God's help they got through it - just like we do today!

This book was written so well and the characters were really brought to life in this book! Lynn Austin has done it again!
