Jehoshaphat: A Word on World-Bordering


Loizeaux Brothers

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Jehoshaphat represents a lone follower of God amid a succession of evil kings. Normally, his name is buried in a chronology of idolatry, wickedness, and the outright desecration of God’s holiness. But Jehoshaphat chooses a different path. He serves as an example of godly living in a corrupt society. According to Mackintosh in Jehoshaphat: A Word on World-Bordering, Jehoshaphat is noteworthy not only for his remarkable reign, but because he serves as a metaphor for the church’s place in the modern world. In this way, his exposition of Jehoshaphat’s life extends from biographical tale to timely spiritual instruction.

Praise for the Print Edition

Man’s complete ruin in sin, and God’s perfect remedy in Christ, are fully, clearly, and often strikingly presented [in Mackintosh’s writings].

—Andrew Miller, a leader of the Plymouth Brethren movement
