Nehemiah is a brief book in the Bible. Nehemiah is also a man steeped in religious tradition and working for a foreign government. When bad news arrives, he finds an impossible purpose for his life: rebuild Jerusalem. This book is a series of conversations with Nehemiah exploring how he followed God and led people.In these conversations, Jon Swanson explores prayer, opposition, distraction, injustice, and staying faithful to the end of life. The conversational style reaches beyond the book of Nehemiah and teaches us a way to explore the Bible. A Great Work is not a typical commentary on the Bible, it’s a conversation with the Bible.
