God's Way of Recovery
by T. Austin-Sparks
"This book that goes under this name, Nehemiah, is in itself a microcosm of the conflict of all the ages - you think about that! When we reach the end of this book, which as we have said, is the last fragment of historical record in the Old Testament, we are in the presence of an achievement intended by God Himself. Something has been done which God intended to be done and therefore, something to which God committed Himself in sovereign purpose and sovereign power. That, to me, is the heart of the message of this book."
