Rebuilding Our Lives and This WorldMany people are good at pointing out problems. What if Gods people were among the few who are good at finding solutions? How would our world and our lives be different? This five-week study focuses on the person of Nehemiah in the Bible, who faced the difficult work of rebuilding the wall of Jerusalem after his people returned from exile. Confronted with this complicated task and the many dilemmas that came with it, Nehemiah chose not to dwell on his problems or to pursue his own answers. Instead, he sought Gods solutions, following Gods lead and trusting Gods purposes. Gods people today are called to do the same. In each chapter, Talbot Davis shows how Nehemiahs experiences mirror the problems we face, as individuals and as a society. As you read this book, you will hear Gods call to be someone who finds solutions. You will see how you can follow in Nehemiahs footsteps, building up your life and the world around you. You will be challenged not to focus on problems, but to seek Gods solutions and how you can help bring them about.

This book is based on a sermon series Talbot Davis delivered at Good Shepherd United Methodist Church. Each chapter includes questions for reflection and discussion, a practical focus for the week, a closing prayer, and daily scripture passages to guide personal reading throughout the week.
