Rebuild: A Study in Nehemiah
KATHLEEN NIELSON with D.A. CARSON
In Nehemiah, the curtain is going down on Old Testament history, and we get one last glimpse—one last compelling story. It’s the story of a remnant of God’s people who returned to Jerusalem after their exile, led by Nehemiah to rebuild the city wall. As Nehemiah tells the story, we see not only the wall rebuilt, but the people of God rebuilt around God’s Word. This is the people God promised to bless, and through whom God promised blessing for all the peoples of the earth. Nehemiah shows us that God’s promises do not fail. God is faithful, according to His Word.
