Chuck DeGroat on The Golden Calf
One of my seminary professors, Chuck DeGroat has written an incredible book on Exodus and our struggles as humans, Leaving Egypt. Here is a great quote from his chapter on the Golden Calf:
Where was God? [While Israel was making the Golden Calf] In a blend of irony, tragedy, and even a bit of comedy, while the Israelites were desperately crafting their substitute God-presence, God was busy making plans to be more present with them than ever. And while we’re desperately seeking our own substitutes for security, God’s Son, as the carpenter he was raised to be, is building a home for His restless, weary pilgrim children.
I can’t think of a book in the past few years as nuturing to my soul as this one. And if you click this link, it’s only $.99 on Kindle until Saturday! bit.ly/Mz8jIB
