Do others look to you for leadership? Do you face a major task or shoulder heavy responsibilities? Do you want to take your leadership skills to a higher level? When Nehemiah confronted the task of rebuilding Jerusalem's wall, he was heartbroken by the damage he saw and nearly overwhelmed by the task that lay before him.

.Charles Swindoll has taken Nehemiahs example and experiences and related them to 20th Century people. He brings his sensible and straightforward style to offer a deeply spiritual approach to the role of leader. Whatever the context, secular or ministerial, he demonstrates how to size up a task, organize and motivate a team, and respond to inevitable obstacles.

Commentary on Nehemiah

It reads exactly like Swindoll talks. Very friendly, directive and with Swindoll's trademark leading discussions.

I just didn't like it. I didn't use it as a commentary past the first couple of chapters; for whatever reason, it really rubbed me the wrong way. The style, not the content (which is fine). ( )
