David Helm on Teaching Habakkuk

Habakkuk had some significant questions for God. And God’s answers were hard to hear. But he told Habakkuk to write it all down, since future generations would need to hear it. We need to hear it. And those we teach need to as well.

In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, David Helm—lead pastor of the Hyde Park congregation of Holy Trinity Church in Chicago and chairman of the board of the Charles Simeon Trust—walks listeners through the short three-chapter book of Habakkuk, helping us to trace its argument, feel its poetic pathos, and sing its song. We spend time on how to handle Habakkuk’s important statement, “The righteous will live by faith.” We also talk about Habakkuk’s faith-filled determination to trust God in the disaster about to descend as God determines to use the Babylonians to deliver his judgment.
