Many believe that the stories surrounding the birth of Moses mark him from the cradle as being destined for leadership. Others argue that the track record of Moses as a leader leaves much to be desired, and that without the constant prompting by God, he would never have survived. The central proposition in this book is that neither of these polar positions reflects the profound transformations and growth Moses experiences. It is within the turbulent space of change that he becomes a great leader, but not without his fair share of missteps along the way. It is precisely from those mistakes that Moses learns so that he becomes a model of someone who ultimately emerges as a leader. This book traces his path to leadership.
Readers of the book will be treated to rigorous and close readings of the text as tools for developing themes and patterns. Throughout the book they will be introduced to a variety of techniques and skills for reading the Bible and will experience the potential those techniques have for revealing unimagined layers of interpretation and mining the biblical text. This book will provoke readers to think about the Bible, about leadership, and about Moses, in a new light.
