Anthony Poggo is the Bishop of the Diocese of Kajo-Keji in South Sudan. This commentary is the fruit of his study of the Book of Nehemiah over a period of many years. Anthony offers a detailed and careful reading of Nehemiah, with particular reference to the situation faced by the people of South Sudan, rebuilding a country after 40 years of civil war. ‘The books of Ezra and Nehemiah contain the needed guidelines for the spiritual, social and economic reconstruction of Africa,’ he says – and this study offers eloquent and challenging testimony to that. Anthony considers the problems of leadership, the challenges of division, the obstacles to growth, the demands of living in a subsistence economy and the need for a proper evaluation and confession of the past. He urges the people of South Sudan to focus on the resources that they have, rather than those they do not, and to overcome a post war culture of dependency on outside agencies. This is a realistic and honest appraisal of the challenges facing South Sudan, rooted in the deep conviction that the way ahead lies in a fresh understanding of their place in the story of God.
