Inhaltsangabe: Our lives are often shaped by the people and events that touch us. Many events and relationships in our lives can result in incredible physical and emotional pain. Often this pain is the results of circumstances outside our control. A drunk driver can forever deform a vibrant healthy life. A sexual affair can destroy a marriage. A terrible disease can destroy a young life. Turning a human life into a statistic steals personal identity. From a human perspective these events may often seem terribly unfair, completely unjustifiable, and totally underserved. What can be said of Uriah the Hittite? Uriah?s name and his life is often overshadowed by his wife?s adulterous affair with a philandering King David. Uriah the Hittite is an individual whose identity has been stolen. Many people face circumstances in life where all that they believed about themselves is stripped away. Covetousness, fornication, adultery, greed, cancer, political upheaval, untimely death and even murder tears through lives. It is simply not fair from a worldly perspective, and few men or women have been abused more by life than Uriah the Hittite. Yet few men or women have endured their trials, tribulations and tempting with greater grace than Uriah the Hittite. The author shares the personal tragedy of losing a son. He shares how that event transformed his life. It is the author?s hope that in sharing what he has discovered through his commentary on Uriah the Hittite that lives will be transformed, and the personal tragedies tearing apart readers? lives will be healed. Uriah the Hittite was a refugee from genocide, a servant in the tabernacle, a husband of a trophy bride, a victim of adultery, a betrayed but fearless soldier, a witness to the carnage of war, a mocked man, an abused man and a murdered man. Unfair the world cries, but a careful examination reveals Uriah lived the life and died the death God predestined for his life. The author explores the importance of Uriah the Hittite?s name. Uriah?s name means ?the flame of Jehovah?, and the significance of God?s use of flames and fire through Old and New Testament examples are explored. The genealogical heritage of Uriah?s ancestral roots is unearthed. The boring Old Testament ?begats? take on a new life. The faithfulness of a Godly covenant is followed as centuries unfold. Rev. Larry Briggs says, ?This is excellent and inspiring work. I am confident it will educate, encourage and bring comfort to many.? John Wesley Rowe, Jr. helps us comprehend the long term vision God has for our trials and tribulations. The world says a loving God would not put the trials of life on His children. Many a Christian has missed untold blessings when they have failed to be cheerful in the midst of life?s greatest challenges. Visit the Brook Besor through the reading of Unfair, Uriah the Hittite's Life of Service.
Über den Autor: John Wesley Rowe, Jr. The author for many years was a newspaperman and journalist who published newspapers in the Midwest, South and Northeast. While his investigative reporting sparked federal investigations and convictions, it is his sensitivity to God?s involvement in community life that has given voice to many a Christian testimony being published in general circulation newspapers. While leading his newsroom to Indiana?s Associate Press Managing Editors? sweepstake award for the best newspaper work in all categories and amongst all circulation sizes in Indiana's annual competiton, it was always the daily Bible verse published on page one that he believed had the most community impact. Dr. Edward M. Eastman, Jr. stated in the acknowledgements of his book The Puritan River , ? The writer is grateful to God for raising up an extraordinary servant, Wesley Rowe, publisher of the Register Citizen. It was his vision to publish the (The Puritan River) story of revival and awakening in northwestern Connecticut, which appeared on the front page of the Sunday newspaper, over the course of seven weeks. What a privilege to work together with Wes in providing these articles targeting many readers in the region.? When moving to a new community and newspaper Wes had a habit of visiting the largest and most prominent cemeteries in the community. His genealogical interests would have him taking down the names from stones that caught his eye. Upon his return to the newspaper he would visit the newspaper?s morgue and research the people whose names he had retrieved from the memorial stones. It was from these memorial stones that he would build his understanding of the community?s history and culture. He has employed this same practice of discovery to find the heart and soul of Uriah the Hittite in this new book Unfair. With print journalism quickly going the way of the Conestoga wagon in the delivery of news and advertising, Wes has found an outlet in writing and speaking. His new vision is to share through the difficulties in his life and in Uriah the Hittite?s life that the seemingly unfair trials and tribulations of life can be overcome even in death.
