Can one man with the help of God turn a vision into reality? Nehemiah did. The walls of Jerusalem arose from rubble. A wayward people were brought together as a worshipping community. But the book of Nehemiah is not simply history. It challenges and encourages us all, whether leaders or church members, to face the issues and problems confronting our churches today. It offers us timeless principles and insights to be followed, if we are to see many of our churches rise from potential ruin to God-inspired restoration.
