I first read this book about 15 years ago, and have not gone back to it because it is impactful, and uncomfortable. I just now listened to the audiobook, and it is just as uncomfortable now as it was 15 years ago. And yet, I need that discomfort and reminder. A must read for all believers, and especially those of us who have served under a King Saul, who clearly was insane and abusive. I have practiced these truths. I learned not to rebel as Absolom did, and finally had to do as David did under Saul and leave. ( )

Estudio sobre el Quebrantamiento, la Sumisión y la Autoridad.Este bello, sencillo y enérgico relato, narrado por uno de los mejores novelistas norteamericanos, se convirtió en drama,representado por actores profesionales en el teatro y por aficionados en los templos. Algunos pastores han leído a sus congregaciones todo el relato desde el púlpito. Varios líderes cristianos y directores de movimientos religiosos han animado a sus miembros y a sus empleados en todo el mundo a que lean este libro. Por toda la tierra los cristianos han sidos ayudados, consolados y sanados del dolor, el daño y la angustia que han sufrido como resultado de un tratamiento injusto por parte de otros creyentes. Este libro es extraordinariamente útil para motivar a la reflexión y discusión en reuniones de pastores y otros líderes espirituales sobre el liderazgo aprobado por Dios.

A Tale of Three Kings is dedicated

"To the brokenhearted Christians
coming out of authoritarian groups, seeking solace,
healing, and hope. May you somehow recover
and go on with him who is liberty.

And to all brokenhearted Christians:
May you be so utterly healed that you can still answer
the call of him who asks for all because he is all."

The book’s theme is simple. God used David’s suffering under King Saul to form his character. When David’s son tried to usurp the throne, David refused to become Saul-like. I can understand how appealing this sounds to those who have suffered under abusive leadership. The fact that this book is so popular is a sad testimony to the state of leadership in the church!

While there is deep value in suffering and God uses everything in our lives to develop our character, this book offers but one answer to the problem of Saulide leadership: “What, then, can you do? Very little. Perhaps nothing” (44). To the abused, this is a counsel of despair.

Edwards’ story presupposes an authoritarian type of leadership in which the leader, for good or for ill, is anointed of God and in place to call the shots. There’s nothing for the Davids of this world to do but to endure. While rebellion is never a good solution to poor leadership, mute endurance only enables the abuser.

Jesus has demonstrated and calls for a different type of leadership—servant leadership. Perhaps the model of King and servant isn’t the best metaphor for church leadership in light of the one who washed our feet. ( )

This short, simple book based on the author's retelling and interpretation of David, Saul, and Absalom is Biblical and so powerful. This is a book I find myself wanting to reread over and over again. Such a beautiful encouragement to come before God in humility and trust Him with our circumstances and our relationships. ( )
