When the people of Israel returned to Jerusalem after the exile, the city was run down, and its wall had been destroyed. The book of Nehemiah describes its namesake’s effort to rebuild the wall and restore God’s city. It offers an example of godly leadership that believers can learn from today. Nehemiah’s prayerful dependence on God, his devotion to the Word, and his commitment to lead Israel in repentant faith are exemplary in the biblical record.

In volume one of this series, Alistair Begg follows Nehemiah’s journey from the Persian royal court to the battered streets of Jerusalem to rebuild the wall. Nehemiah’s compassionate reaction to the city’s condition pushed him to act on his faith in God. As he led the people in a vision to give God glory through the restoration of God’s city, he confronted threats from without and within, all the while depending on God’s mercies and turning continually to prayer.
