Oftentimes Nehemiah is the book that gets preached through when a church building campaign comes around. Or Nehemiah is used as an example of a prayerful, strategic, and effective leader for a series on leadership. But is seeing and teaching the book of Nehemiah through the lens of wall-builder or inspiring leader the best way to approach the book?Aaron Messner, senior pastor of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Atlanta, Georgia, suggests there is more. The building language of the book of Nehemiah is showing us something about the building up of God's covenant people, the church, which is being built with living stones led by one greater than Nehemiah.Recommended Audio ResourcesSermon series on Ezra, Haggai and Nehemiah by Aaron MessnerSermon series on Nehemiah by Alistair BeggSermon series on Nehemiah by Derek ThomasRecommended Print ResourcesNehemiah: Rebuilt and Rebuilding by Kathleen Buswell NielsonEzra and Nehemiah: A 12-Week Study by Kathleen Buswell NielsonExalting Jesus in Ezra and Nehemiah by James Hamilton, Jr.
