Many in our churches find themselves in need of renewal, yet are discouraged by the church's lack of impact on the world and our culture. The book of Zechariah addresses God's people in just this situation--discouraged and in need of renewal. In doing so, it provides a captivating vision of God and his work in the world, leading readers into a deeper longing for God and the coming of his kingdom.
"As a book of new beginnings, Zechariah is filled with vivid images and enigmatic visions. Within its pages are some of the most memorable passages in all the Old Testament, passages that paint dramatic pictures and offer pointed oracles for a people who--like us--find themselves discouraged by the problems within their own community and the larger geopolitical instability of recent years."--from Chapter 1. In this book the author guides the layperson through the book of Zechariah and relates it to the life of the Christian today. Includes questions for reflection at the end of each chapter.
