About the Book

When I first heard of A Tale of Three Kings, I was coming to terms with the aftermath of the “shepherding” movement.  As a young pastor, I had the unique position of being both a perpetrator and a victim of heavy-handed discipleship.  I had been brought face to face with my immaturity and pride, while still stinging from arrogant and abusive church authority. This book was and still is a God-send of comfort to me.  It can be read easily in the course of an afternoon.  It will alter your understanding of humility and authority forever.

The author is a very gifted and insightful storyteller.  Though the underlying stories are well-known, Mr. Edward’s dialog draws the reader into a deep character study.  Reading this book brought me a new understanding of my need for grace.  It opened my eyes to the ways that my hurt could never be healed until I freely offered forgiveness and grace to others without qualification.

Favorite Quotation

“David was caught in a very uncomfortable position; however, he seemed to grasp a deep understanding of the unfolding drama in which he had been caught. He seemed to understand something that few of even the wisest men of his day understood. Something that in our day, when men are wiser still, even fewer understand.

And what was that?

God did not have – but wanted very much to have – men and women who would live in pain.

God wanted a broken vessel.”
