    1. Victory on the Walls: A Story of Nehemiah, to my surprise, is actually not a "Christian" book. In reality it is part of a series called Covenant Books, which were designed as an "expedition into the realms of Jewish experience," and to "stimulate the young reader's interest in his cultural heritage and prove a rewarding spiritual experience." That's not to say that a Christian audience won't benefit from reading this book, it's just they weren't the original audience. The two main characters in [...]

    2. There is a running joke between me and one of our pastor friends about how we used to play copies of his sermon series on Nehemiah to put our babies to sleep. I was joking, of course, but that still doesn't mean that I was excited about reading this book on Nehemiah and his return to Jerusalem to rebuild the city. Once again (as with much historical fiction), I was pleasantly surprised.The main character of the story is Bani, Nehemiah's nephew who was orphaned and left in his care. This is a fic [...]

    3. An exciting story during the time of Nehemiah. It reflects the Bible quite well, gives a fascinating picture of everyday life, and is also a coming of age story. We use this in our homeschool, reading Nehemiah alongside it. For young teens, but because of the subject matter it is interesting for older teens and adults as well.First read Dec 2012, reread Jan 2016.

    4. A nice historical fiction story set in Ancient Times. It helps readers gain a better appreciation for ancient cultures and the power Nehemiah held as the king's cupbearer.Recommended for family read-aloud or supplement material for World History studies.

    5. Awkward writing (it was hard to read aloud)and it portrayed Nehemiah in a negative fashion. Pick up "Within the Palace Gates" instead.

    6. This is very good historical fiction, geared toward the mid to older teen, but the writing is of such quality that it will be of interest to adults. The title is self explanatory.

    7. We read this book during home school. My children and I really enjoy historical fiction, but this missed the mark for us. It was a difficult read and just didn't hold our interest.
