About This Book

There are always two sides to every story. Perspective plays a big role in determining which side of the narrative a character lands in. Victim or villain? Is it possible to be both? Absalom: Victim or Villain delves into the account of Absalom’s life, a character often debated within Christian circles. By paying close attention to the details of his ancestry and the life he was expected to lead, the author challenges you to consider the nuanced dynamics of victimhood or villainy. In this book you will:
  • Learn about Abaslom’s lineage, his place in Biblical history, and societal norms he lived under
  • Explore the dual nature of Absalom’s character as both a victim and a villain
  • Reflect on the themes of personal responsibility and redemption found in Absalom’s story
Take a walk into Absalom’s life and determine for yourself if this multifaceted Biblical character fits either or both roles, while reflecting the fine line we each face in every decision we make.
