The book of Nehemiah highlights the priorities the people of God should aspire to and the principles needed to fulfill that mission. Bridging the gap between devotional and technical commentaries, Nehemiah: A Pastoral and Exegetical Commentary is an easy to understand exposition of this often overlooked Old Testament narrative. With a mixture of historical data and practical applications, T. J. Betts emphasizes the relevance of Nehemiah’s message for believers today.
T. J. Betts is Professor of Old Testament Interpretation at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has served as pastor of three churches for a total of nearly 15 years.
