Publisher's Summary

The Powerful Concluding Novel to The Restoration Chronicles

When news that the wall of Jerusalem is broken down and its gates have been burned with fire, Nehemiah, Jewish cupbearer to King Artaxerxes in Persia, seeks God's guidance. After fasting and prayer, he's given leave to travel to Jerusalem and rebuild the city wall, not anticipating all the dangers that await him on his arrival. The leaders of the surrounding nations become his fierce enemies, plotting to assassinate him and halt the work. A drought, meanwhile, has left the country impoverished, many families resorting to selling their children as bondservants just to keep from starving.

Capturing the rebuilding of the wall through the eyes of a number of characters, On This Foundation is a powerful exploration of faith in the midst of oppression and hope that, in spite of appearances, the gracious hand of God is upon those who believe.

The Restoration Chronicles Book 3

I absolutely loved this series!!! Lynn Austin is by far my favorite author. This is a biblical fiction series occurring during the lives of the prophets. This specific book involves Nehemiah.Lynn Austin is able to take the story of Nehemiah and make it so riveting that you can't stop listening. After each book, I went to the scripture and was surprised to find hour incredibly accurate it was. Entertaining and educational. I would recommend reading this in order and if you have not read the Gods and Kings series, then do so before this series. Amazing. You will not be disappointed.

I grew to love each character and I will miss them. I laughed cried and worshipped with them. I got goosebumps when Suzanne Toren quoted the Torah.

Lukewarm Series

I can't say I enjoyed this series, but I bought all three and stuck through it. Since I've worked through all Austin's books now except her other Biblical trilogy, I may stop here. These left no impression whatsoever on me. I would recommend sticking with her earliest works of non-Biblical historical fiction. They were excellent.

Great Read

The story of Israel's spiritual and historical struggle to exist as a people and as a nation is intriguing.Nehemiah is a prophet that most people don't know. His vital part in raising the walls from the ashes of the Persian and Babylonians wars is well developed.

Loved this story. Made mw think of God's & mercy.

LOVED it could'nt put it down.
The most memoriable moment when the eldest daugther decided to join the men to build the wall and refused to obey Nehemiah's direct order to cease.
