Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great! Dynamic writing   Sep 29, 2005
This is not only one of the best books that Brueggemann has put out, and I have read about 25 of his books, but is one of the best books anywhere. It focuses on the rise of David to power as King of Israel without blood guilt being on his hands. Brueggemann skillfully told the story in such a way to demonstrate not only how David rose to power, but how legitimate power is to be attained in the Church. Yahweh, is of course, behind the ataining of power, hence the Providence in the title, but Yahweh operates behind the scenes. Brueggemann, as always, has remarkable insights that leaves you saying, "Why didn't I ever read it that way before. This book needs to be read by anyone who is going to live in the real world where issues of power are going to be played out. This is an excellent book.
