Dear Friends,

I am thrilled to share the release of my latest book, “Nehemiah: How God Renews His People.” In this exploration of the Nehemiah narrative, we delve into a story that transcends the life of its central human character to reveal a more profound truth about our ever-faithful God. This book is not just about Nehemiah; it’s about God’s unceasing work in renewing His people.

Throughout history, we have seen periods where apathy, disobedience, and defeat have distanced God’s people from their divine purpose. Once intended to be a beacon of God’s light, Israel found itself in such a state. But God initiated a renewal process in His relentless love and mercy. He called upon Nehemiah, setting in motion a transformative journey for an individual and an entire nation.

In “Nehemiah: How God Renews His People,” we will study each pivotal moment of Nehemiah’s journey, drawing parallels to how God works today. This book is a testament to God’s unwavering commitment to revitalize and renew. Whether it is you, your family, or your church seeking rejuvenation, this Nehemiah study offers a guiding light back to the heart of God’s renewing power.

I invite you to join me in this journey of rediscovery as we learn how the lessons from Nehemiah’s time are just as relevant and powerful for us today. Click this link to access a free download of the first chapter:
