In this most useful publication, Rowland Wickes has applied principles of 2 Timothy 3:16-17. Not only is all Scripture God-breathed (inspired) but it is also profitable for:-
"teaching...rebuking...correcting...and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work."
The writer gives the history of Nehemiah with detains of the very real problems which he and others face when rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem 2 500 years ago. However general lessons are drawn from those events from which all today can learn.
