Book Description: The life of Nehemiah is an inspiring testament to the power of determination. Years after Jerusalem’s defeat by Babylon, the Jewish people returned to their land, only to discover a city left in ruins. Surrounded by enemies, Nehemiah finds himself tasked with an overwhelming charge: To rebuild the walls of his beloved city. This Bible study examines Nehemiah’s remarkable journey from the everyday to the extraordinary, and explores the unique power found in perseverance.
The Wiersbe Bible Studies Series explores timeless wisdom found in God’s word. Based on Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s popular “BE” series, each study provides topical, relevant insights from selected books of the Bible. Designed for small groups, this eight-week study features selected commentaries from BE Determined, engaging questions, and practical applications, all designed to help you connect God’s word with your life.
My Review: Dr. Warren Wiersbe has become a favorite Bible teacher of mine because he expounds on the Scriptures so that the "common man" can understand God's Word.
This is an eight-week study and includes an introduction to the book of Nehemiah, tips for small group study, self-introspective questions, and practical applications. Throughout the study, portions of Dr. Wiersbe’s “Be” commentaries are included to provide greater insight and to encourage those participating in the study to continue to deepen their study of God’s Word. Then as one continues the study one may want a more in depth study and decide to use Dr. Wiersbe's commentaries for a more complete study.
There is plenty of room in this book to write notes but I suggest that you obtain a notebook and write your answers and questions out. It makes for a nice study guide if one should decide to go back and study this book again.
Dr. Warren Wiersbe has devoted his life to the deep examination of God’s Word. He is an internationally known Bible teacher, former pastor of The Moody Church in Chicago, and the author of more than 160 books. Among this large body of written work, the “Be” commentary series has become a resource that millions have come to rely on for over thirty years. Dr. Wiersbe also served as the contributing editor of The Transformation Study Bible. The timeless insights on Scripture provided by Dr. Wiersbe have helped countless numbers of readers to better understand and apply God’s Word to their daily lives. Known to many as the “pastor’s pastor,” Dr. Wiersbe combines historical explanations and thought-provoking questions with the unchanging truth of Scripture in such a way that believers at every level of spiritual maturity can easily grasp its relevance.
