The book of Nehemiah powerfully illustrates God's faithfulness as it chronicles Israel's return from exile. In this collection of biblical expositions, nine prominent Bible teachers lead readers on a gospel-centered survey of this Old Testament book, connecting the story of Nehemiah to God's overarching story of redemption. Chapters include:
Kathy Keller - Taking Action in Light of God's Word (Nehemiah 1-2)
Tim Keller - Laboring for a God Who Fights for Us (Nehemiah 3-4)
Paige Brown - Fearing God in a Fallen World (Nehemiah 5-6)
Nancy Guthrie - Coming Together around God's Word (Nehemiah 7-8)
John Piper - Responding to God according to His Word (Nehemiah 9-10)
Carrie Sandom, Jenny Salt, & Kathleen Nielson - Celebrating! A Moment of Joy in Jerusalem (Nehemiah 11-12)
D. A. Carson - Leaning Forward in the Dark: A Failed Reformation (Nehemiah 13)
Now their talks have been edited with additional content and put into book form. Weaving testimony and teaching, Piper and Carson challenge all those in ministry to think carefully and holistically about their calling. An introduction by Owen Strachan and a conclusion by David Mathis provide context and application to these unique messages.
Pastors and scholars will want to take advantage of this valuable insider perspective from two men who have been acclaimed for their sharp thinking and pastoral hearts.
