Item Description...
Is the Book of Nehemiah best understood as the memoirs of a leader par excellance---or as a spirited account of God's leading? From the author of Knowing God comes an insightful look at the dual themes of Nehemiah: how Nehemiah led the people and how God led Nehemiah---all for the glory of God's kingdom

Publishers Description

He was one of the Bible's greatest leaders. A man of action who took on the incredible task of rebuilding ancient Jerusalem. He was dedicated. Wise. A zealous man who saturated himself with prayer. In all of this he helped set the standard for godly leadership. And yet you probably know nothing about him. He was Nehemiah.

Indeed, his Old Testament book reads like the memoirs of a pastoral leader and politician par excellence. In it Nehemiah tells how, with God's help and blessing, he went about rebuilding the city of Jerusalem and renewing her people. It is a spirited, first-person account of spiritual renewal. Yet Nehemiah can equally be read as a testimony to God's involvement with man. Using a Bible-study approach J. I. Packer looks at how Nehemiah led the people and how God led Nehemiah--all to ultimately build up His Kingdom. Through this book you will discover a model for revival in your own church.

A Passion for Faithfulness should be read by church and business leaders for its in-depth look at Nehemiah's example in these particular arenas. But anyone who thirsts for God and a sense of His presence in their everyday responsibilities will also be inspired by this book. Whether you're a stay-at-home mom trying to raise godly children or an employee who longs for God to make Himself real in even the most mundane task, this book will be a trusted help and a welcome reminder of God's desire to be involved in every facet of your life.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Important Insights in leadership  Jan 22, 2009
"A Passion For Faithfulness" by J. I. Packer is not an exegetical study of the book of Nehemiah. It is not a commentary either. What Packer discusses are a series of principles of leadership and church-building that Nehemiah can provide for the modern reader.

Dr Packer provides for us many years of study and application of the principles that will change a person's approach to ministry. He discusses theology of the Church, Type and Typology, Background to Nehemiah, Prayer, Work, Battling Enemies, Management, Leadership, Call into Ministry, Covenant, Vision Casting and Obedience. All of this is done by Packer with wisdom and experinence couched in real life experiences he has been a part of.

I highly recommend this book as a stand-alone study for the average Christian or in suppliment with Williamson, Fensham, and Kidner for the Teacher and Preacher.
