Iddo returns to his family in Babylon after escaping from beseiged Jerusalem to find his son's feelings for him have changed for the worse. But Iddo is still on a mission, and must speak with Ezekiel concerning all that Iddo has seen. Escorted by his son, he arrives before Ezekiel has returned, and is able to acquaint himself with some of Ezekiel's prophecies. While much of what he finds has sadly come to pass, he learns that Ezekiel has also brought a new word from God concerning the rebirth of Israel, in spirit and in body, and it just might be far-reaching enough to personally affect Iddo and his family! Recommended for ages 14 and up.
Just as all seems lost with Judah's exile in Babylon, Iddo finds hope in the prophetic writings of Ezekiel. The message given to the exiles---that even in a spiritually barren land, God can bring dry bones to life---still offers hope today.
