Book Review: The 21st Century Nehemiah
Interview by Beth Michaels
What experiences led you to discuss servant leadership?
A: I grew up observing many leaders, both in the religious and political world—some with insightful and challenging leadership qualities, and some with no leadership qualities at all. Yet, they would hang on to their position just to seek power, wealth, status and influence with no results. Through this book, I want others to understand the real role of a dedicated, God-fearing leader.
Why did you choose to focus on Nehemiah?
A: I believe Nehemiah is the best example of a servant leader after Jesus Christ. He exhibited true characteristics of a humble, loving, visionary and compassionate leader. He did not care for the comforts of the royal palace or his “royal” job, but left for Jerusalem to comfort and serve His people and build the ruins of the city.
Pick up a copy of the book at the Potomac Adventist Book and Health Food Store in Silver Spring, Md. You can also read more about Adventist principles at Mathews’ website, gladadventistministries.com.
