Bring us the Book!

I’m writing today at Out of the Ordinary about Nancy Guthrie’s plenary message from Nehemiah 7 and 8…

…that beautiful passage of Scripture where Ezra teaches the book of the law to the people and all who hear understand. Nancy called our attention to Nehemiah 8:1 where Nehemiah reports that the people “told Ezra the scribe to bring the Book of the Law of Moses that the Lord had commanded Israel.”

“Bring us the book!” Nancy imagined the people crying out and as she did so throughout the auditorium various women echoed the cry. “Bring us the book!” Nancy called out again and again the cry reverberated throughout.

It was obviously arranged beforehand yet striking just the same. As we called out for the Book, Nancy replied with the obvious application: O, that God would raise up women hungrier for the Book!
