I found a new book genre that I have just fallen in love with, Biblical Fiction. I was about to start reading Harvest of Rubies by Tessa Afshar, and it was about the cousin of the prophet Nehemiah (remember the book was fiction). So I figured it would be a good idea to read the book that bears his name. According to Crossway, it takes 58 minutes to read Nehemiah.
Just a reminder, it’s best to let scripture interpret scripture. I like these resources because they help me better understand scripture, but I may not agree with everything they say. As in all things, pray and invite God to help you in your time of reading and studying. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you and use discernment when using resources outside of the Bible itself. “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15 NIV)
Here is an additional resource I recommend looking into after you read Nehemiah through on your own:
