In a period of history like ours that cries out for decisive and compelling leaders in the church, Dr. Mark Roberts' commentary of Ezra-Nehemiah (one book in the Hebrew and treated as such in this commentary) provides rich resources for understanding and implementing biblical principles of leadership.
