The events of Nehemiah's life may not be as familiar as the feats of David, the ark of Noah, or the storms tossing Jonah, but the hand of God is clearly upon this man's heart and mind. Dr. Redpath guides us through the book of Nehemiah and reveals for us the abundant life of Christian service. Nehemiah's motivation is both compelling and convicting as he risks much to honor God's house and, thus, God's name. Joining him in his journey to reconstruct the walls of Jerusalem, we observe the crucial element of a structurally sound spiritual walk. God employs this willing worker to recognize a need, begin preparation, and face the challenge. These are the lessons that compel God's people to Victorious Christian Service.
