James Edwards believes God is in the business of interrupting lives and changing them forever. He shows how the stories of eight biblical characters are paradigms for the ways God intrudes in our lives today, leading us to do His will and become the people He wants us to be. Through creatively told Bible stories and intriguing anecdotes of personal experiences, Edwards creates an interplay between the historical and the contemporary that allows you to discover God afresh. You'll observe how God interrupts people's lives in times of disillusionment, inadequacy, grief, and even opposition. As you join these conversations, you'll understand God's character in a new, intimate way. And, you may see clues to God's interruptions in your own life.
From a Swiss village to the jungles of Colombia and the former East Germany, James R. Edwards has encountered the Divine Intruder around the world. In addition to authoring several commentaries and many scholarly articles on the New Testament, Edwards, who is Bruner-Welch Professor Emeritus of Theology at Whitworth University in Spokane, Washington, has authored Is Jesus the Only Savior? (Eerdmans, 2006). He is currently at work on a biography of Ernst Lohmeyer, a German theologian and member of the Confessing Church who was martyred by Soviet and East German communist operatives in 1946.
