The Book of Ezekiel, also called The Prophecy of Ezekiel, one of the major prophetical books of the Old Testament. According to dates given in the text, Ezekiel received his prophetic call in the fifth year of the first deportation to Babylonia (593 B.C.E.) and was active until about 570 B.C.E.
The Book of Jeremiah, also called The Prophecy Of Jeremias, one of the major prophetical writings of the Old Testament. As a prophet, Jeremiah pronounced God's judgment upon the people of his time for their wickedness. He was concerned especially with false and insincere worship and failure to trust Yahweh in national affairs. He denounced social injustices but not so much as some previous prophets, such as Amos and Micah.
The Book of Isaiah is the first of the earlier Prophets in the Hebrew Bible and the first of the Major Prophets in the Christian Old Testament. Isaiah is a book that unveils the full dimensions of God's judgment and salvation. God is "the Holy One of Israel" (see 1:4; 6:1 and notes) who must punish his rebellious people (1:2) but will afterward redeem them (41:14,16).
The Book of Psalms, commonly referred to simply as Psalms, the Psalter or “the Psalms,” is the first book of the Ketuvim, the third section of the Tanakh, and a book of the Christian Old Testament. These are sacred poems meant to be sung. The Psalms are for the most part a book of prayer and praise. In it, faith speaks to God in prayer and of God in praise. But there are also psalms that are explicitly didactic (instructional) in form and purpose (teaching the way of godliness).
The story of Job is one of the best known in the entire Bible yet, strangely enough, one of the least understood. No book in the Scripture is so shrouded in mystery as this ancient story. As Winston Churchill once described the Soviet Union, Job is “a riddle wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma.” Tangled and troubling, its pages are veiled with the deep, perplexing issues of life. Profoundly provocative to the human mind, Job is a journey into the inscrutable ways of God.—Max Anders and Steven Lawson
The Book of Chronicles is a Hebrew prose work, constituting part of Jewish and Christian scripture. These books were designed to sustain the hopes and prayers of God's people as they wait for God to fulfill his ancient promises. "Chronicles was a book of hope for its time. We will call the message of 1 and 2 Chronicles the 'gospel according to Ezra.'" - Winfried Corduan; Max Anders.
The Book of Chronicles is a Hebrew prose work constituting part of Jewish and Christian scripture. It contains a genealogy starting from Adam and a narrative of the history of ancient Judah and Israel until the proclamation of King Cyrus the Great (c. 537 BC). The time frame covered in 1 Chronicles mirrors parts of 2 Samuel and 1 Kings. The chronicler, Ezra, focused on David's reign in 1 Chronicles
"The two books of Kings were written originally as one book. Even though they describe events long ago and far away, they bring a message that is surprisingly current and relevant." - Max Anders
"Nehemiah is a great example of someone whose desire was to please God and glorify him. His intentions and aspirations were God-focused rather than self-focused. God defined his dominant purpose. When he heard that the walls of Jerusalem were broken down and God's people were living in distress, that driving purpose kicked in. Nehemiah prayed a profound prayer of praise, adoration, submission, and request." - Max Anders; Knute Larson; Kathy Dahlen
"We are taken from ground level, with its distortions and limited vision, and given a view from above. At this clarifying distance, we see that life on earth is not directed by the whim of rulers or the might of armies, but by the determination of God. Viewpoint makes all the difference in the world. God's all-encompassing sovereignty and humanity's capacity for choice exist together. God—absolute and unrivalled in his actions and authority; man—free and responsible." - Max Anders, Knute Larson, Kathy Dahlen.
