WIELENGA, Bob. Renewal and reconstruction: Holy Writ in Ezra-Nehemiah - A missional reading. In Skriflig (Online) [online]. 2013, vol.47, n.1, pp.141-149. ISSN 2305-0853.

In this article we investigate the missional potential of the two-volume book of Ezra-Nehemiah. We contend that the written word of God is a transforming power in society through the mediation of the church. This implies that spiritual renewal precedes social reconstruction. We examine this book historically, canonically and exegetically to lay a foundation for a missiological reflection on the results of this excursion in the field of biblical studies. We close with the formulation of some missional conclusions that serve as guidelines for the development of a relevant theology of mission.
