- EVEN IN BABYLON, GOD IS IN CONTROL! by Steve on 7/17/2015
Dr. Larry Osborne has served as a senior pastor and teaching pastor at North Coast Church – one of the ten most influential churches in the country – since 1980. Dr. Larry Osborne is a pastor who recognizes truth ... and has no compunctions in administering it.
In his work, THRIVING IN BABYLON, Dr. Osborne takes a fresh look at the book of Daniel. Discarding the “typical” interpretation of Daniel as a book of mystery, disregarding the “popular” interpretation of Daniel as a book of encouragement, Dr. Osborne engages the text with scholarship and wisdom, and opens up the eyes of those who will see. Along the way, the author explores:
• Why panic and despair are never from God
• What true optimism really looks like
• How humility disarms even the greatest of enemies
• Why respect causes those who would otherwise have nothing to do with God, to listen
• How wisdom can snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat
But be warned ... as an old proverb counsels us, “Truth can sometimes wear a wry face.” Are you prepared to handle the truth?
Author Dr. Larry Osborne can deliver it.
5 stars for a refreshing, reflective understanding of the life of Daniel
