Of Kings & Prophets

Power is only as strong as the authority that sustains it.

Dr. Mark Rutland’s new book will help you be a better leader. It will help you receive a healthy dose of accountability through applied spiritual authority.

The biblical prophets did not live or prophesy in a contextual vacuum. They spoke into real-life circumstances to real-life leaders such as kings, queens, governors, and generals. Drawing on biblical accounts, Dr. Mark Rutland shows how these interactions, sometimes in the form of advice but more often as dramatic confrontations, demonstrate the tension between heaven’s authority and the princes of this world.
