The best laid plans… well, you know how the saying goes!
So we were headed to start a series on judging. And we will get there – it’s good stuff!
Short, powerful, thought-provoking and amazingly narrated, this account of Saul, David, and Absalom is fascinating. We are excited to offer A Tale of Three Kings as the free audiobook download for March! In addition, the eBook is available for just $3.99, for a limited time, at eChristian.com.
Since it was first published in 1992, A Tale of Three Kings has sold more than 1 million copies in print, making it a true modern day classic.
When I read this book several years ago, this was my response:
A Tale of Three Kings by Gene Edwards provides a treasured answer to a prayer I have been praying for over four years. Page 19 describes me perfectly: “You can easily tell when someone has been hit by a spear. He turns a deep shade of bitter.” This book provides the lens that I need to understand life in a way that frees me from bitterness… I hope to learn to respond to Sauls as David did.
I’ll share with you some of my favorite take aways, but for today, I want to share one reviewer’s excellent summary:
It’s all too common in today’s church: Christians hurting Christians. A critical comment, an unforgiving stare, a no-holds-barred battle among church members. In the end one or both parties are wounded, a testimony has been harmed, and the only winner is Satan. In A Tale of Three Kings, author Gene Edwards speaks to those who have been harmed at the hands of other believers. He uses two biblical accounts – those of the relationship between David and Saul and that between Absalom and David – to deliver a message of hope, comfort, and healing.
A Tale of Three Kings is short, powerful, engaging, and provides a radically transforming perspective. It unfolds some true treasures. The way it jostles perceptions is invaluable. It may anger and delight you, and cause you to agree and disagree in the same sentence.
If you check it out, I’d love to hear your thoughts as we discuss it in the next couple of posts! I adore so many things about this book, and I hope you enjoy it!
