HIS-tory, Part 10: EXILE, God’s Conquest of Hearts (Daniel, Ezra, Nehemiah, Esther)

Summary: 

The books of Ezra, Nehemiah, Daniel, (parts of) Jeremiah, Esther, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi give us personal and intense glimpses into the state of things right after God's chosen people were conquered in their own promised land.... and we didn't even mention Lamentations!  What was God doing in this time?
