Description


A great job, a wonderful group of friends, financial security.What if God asked to you leave it all behind today-to forsake everything familiar and comfortable? To give it all up to go to a neglected, third-rate portion of the world and to rebuild a city you've never seen?Sound unlikely? This is precisely a portrait of Nehemiah, cupbearer to the king of Persia. After hearing that a plan to rebuild Jerusalem's ruined city wall had tragically failed, Nehemiah's heart was broken. Yet, he wasn't satisfied simply to lament the incident from his sheltered life in Persia. Hearing God's call for him to go back to his homeland and see the wall restored completely, he responded in radical obedience, forsaking everything to follow God's instructions.In this captivating 10-week study of an often-overlooked Old Testament book, the authors link Nehemiah's obedience with its practical implications for believers today. As Nehemiah faced great opposition and numerous setbacks, he and the Israelites learned how to totally abandon themselves to God's will and way for their lives. Each lesson offers valuable observations to help deepen faith, inspire hope, and strengthen the resolve to follow God's leading at all costs. The Wisdom of the Word Bible Study books are great resources for Sunday School classes, small-groups, independent Bible studies, or anyone interested in deepening his/her understanding of the Bible and the amazing truth found in the Christian faith.Jeannie McCullough founded Wisdom of the Word in 1986 when she was a pastor's wife in Bethany, Oklahoma. It began as a weekly Bible study at a local church and within the first year grew to more than 400 members. Today, Wisdom of the Word continues to thrive in churches and in home groups around the country and has proven to be an effective instrument in uniting believers as well as reaching the unchurched and the lost.
