About-

"He puts down the mighty from their thrones, and exalts the lowly."

Luke 1:52


What does the biblical tradition have to say about power? Professor Walsh tackles this complex question, providing a road map for traveling along the various routes of the tradition. He examines the world of Canaan, the origins of Israel, the reasons why the people of the covenant chose to be ruled by a human monarch, and the policies that led to the exilic experiences of Israel and the end of prophecy. Walsh illumines a powerful thesis: only in needfulness, powerlessness, and unrighteousness do we see the salvation of our God.
