We find ourselves in the United States in a similar situation to what Nehemiah and the Israelites, from the Old Testament, found themselves in. There were individuals who opposed Nehemiah's efforts of restoring what the Israelites once had as a nation. These enemies tried many methods of undermining Nehemiah. They did not want Nehemiah to restore the customs or traditions that reminded the Israelites of their heritage.

This book takes a look at the servant leadership that characterized Nehemiah's work of rebuilding their national character. It describes the people and obstacles he faced. Similarities to the difficulties the United States face today are made as we are attempting to restore our national heritage.

Thought-provoking questions are included at the end of the book as a resource for small discussion groups. The author includes his personal story that tells how he and his family have been impacted by today's cultural changes. He also briefly tells how he is re-inventing himself to meet the challenges of today's changing American from the traditional Judeo-Christian heritage to a socialistic, humanistic and progressive society.

It is hoped that through individual reading and small discussion groups much prayer, thought and brainstorming will be given to how we can reclaim the Judeo-Christian heritage our founding fathers intended.
