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 don’t seem to be going to plan. This is an emphasis much needed in the church today. The self-centeredness that characterizes our society is almost overwhelming. We, like the people in Habakkuk’s day, need a radical change in our thinking—an acknowledgment that it is God at the center of reality, not us. This message is at the heart of Habakkuk’s prophecy, and, against the backdrop of ancient Israel, author John Currid illuminates this reality brilliantly.
