Jealousy and the Blindness of Biblical Betrayal: The Negative Power of Jealousy in Leadership and Life

$12.49

In my book, The Blindness of Biblical Betrayal, I cover “imitative rivalry” and the quote by Girard, “We are never more blind than when we are doing violence in the name of God!”

While that book was going to print, I noticed in my daily Bible reading that approximately 23 chapters of the Old Testament were devoted to the rivalry of King Saul and David. Why would God devote so many chapters to this one relationship? Perhaps He wants us to see and learn from the jealousy and blinding betrayal of Saul towards David.

This book mines those 23 chapters for truths and principles to face jealousy and betrayal.

Jealousy and betrayal are common experiences because they are in the fallen DNA of humanity, but what the Devil means for evil, God will use for the good of His people.

Healing, Social Justice, and Radical Love

Jesus Christ’s life and sacrifice was an example of demonstrating love to all people regardless of their race, ethnicity, religion, education, or social class; particularly, the marginalized, vulnerable, and outcast. Real social justice begins with seeing the needs of others with eyes of compassion and humility, and then helping to uplift those who are under the weight of social misery.
