Kings stride in the mists of our imaginations and occupy a favored seat in our stories, our histories, and even our headlines. But did you know that you are called by God to be kingly yourself? The Bible teaches that Christ is our Great Prophet, Priest, and King, and we as Christ’s followers are called to imitate Him in these qualities. This small volume, which brings together riveting historical narratives and engrossing theological observations, is a meditation on what our kingship under Christ means. You will be challenged to imitate Christ’s kingly characteristics and explore your role as a little king under the great King of kings.
A unique aspect of “King” is its combination of historical narrative with practical theology. Each chapter melds an exciting character study from a historical king with the theological concept investigated in the chapter.
