The prophecy of Habakkuk reveals to us, as does no other book in Scripture, an almighty God with absolute sovereignty, a God who requires that his people trust him absolutely even when things do not seem to be going to plan. This is an emphasis that is much needed in the church today. The self-centeredness that characterizes our society today is almost overwhelming. We, like the people in Habakkuk's day, need a radical change in our thinking, acknowledging that it is God who is at the center of reality, not we ourselves. This message is at the heart of Habakkuk's prophecy and author John Currid illuminates this reality brilliantly against the back-drop of ancient Israel.
