Divine Jealousy plays a central role in God's activities throughout human history yet it is virtually ignored among those in the church today.

Christians desire leaders who are dynamic, educated, and entertaining, but it is highly unlikely you will ever see 'jealous' as one of the desired qualities of leaders within the church. However, jealousy is one of the primary attributes of the great leaders in the Bible.

As human jealousy is seldom uncontaminated with sin, it tends only to be understood as a negative emotion. However, the Bible tells us that God is a jealous God, and Erik Thoennes offers us unique insights into Godly Jealousy as taught in Scipture, and also looks closely at biblical leaders who displayed Godly human jealousy. Thoennes masterfully draws ethical and theological implications from godly jealousy for the 21st Century.

This book is a must read for anyone who is concerned with character development and who seeks to know the central values needed in the church today.
