The book of Nehemiah is a good biblical book from which pastors can preach on leadership. Nehemiah was a dynamic leader who was able to motivate the people of Israel to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem. Under his leadership, the people of the restored community were able to rebuilt the shattered walls in fifty-two days.
Albert F. Bean, Professor of Old Testament and Hebrew at Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Kansas City, Missouri has prepared a series of preaching points from Nehemiah. The article containing the preaching points was published in the Midwestern Journal of Theology 4.1 (Fall 2005): 34-46 and is available for download by clicking here.

>Dr Mariottini,Do you know where I can find the article by Albert Bean on preaching points from Nehemiah? The link on the blog doesn't work anymore. I tried searching on my library's online journal database and it did not come up. We started a ten sermon series on Nehemiah today at our church here in Berlin, Germany and would really like additional insight into themes covered. email@example.com
