Publishers Description The book of Nehemiah is about starting over again. Nehemiah, one of Israel's great leaders, tells firsthand the powerful story of the rebuilding of ancient Jerusalem's walls after the exile. This rebuilding, in the face of great odds, represented the people's renewal of faith, their overcoming of national shame and the reforming of their conduct.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Nehemiah: God's Servant in a Time of Change (Bible Speaks Today)?
Not just out of the author's head Jun 2, 1999
This practical, devotional book on Nehemiah is NOT a dry commentary. This is rare in a book on a Bible book. Written by a British Christian, Nehemiah's life has meant much to the author personally. What he says to us about Nehemiah reflects this and gives life...not just thoughts. The book is edited by John R.W. Stott, also of UK consevative Christian repute.
