power: gift or curse?
Power corrupts—as we’ve seen timeand time again. Yet power is also themeans by which we bring life, createpossibilities, offer hope and makehuman flourishing possible. This is“playing god” as it is meant to be.If we are to do God’s work—fightinjustice, bring peace, create beautyand allow the image of God to thrivein those around us—how are we to dothese things if not by power?With
Playing God 
, Andy Crouch opensthe subject of power, elucidating itssubtle activity in our relationships andinstitutions. He gives us much morethan a warning against abuse, though.Turning the notion of “playing god”on its head, Crouch celebrates poweras the gift by which we join in God’screative, redeeming work in the world.

“Power at its worst should unset-tle us, should shock us. But powerat its best is . . . the current of life.It is dangerously good.”“Here is what we need to discoverabout power: it is both better andworse than we could imagine.“Absolute love transfigures abso-lute power. And power transfig-ured by love is the power thatmade and saves the world.”“The worst fate one could wishfor would be to end up alone withone’s power, for then there wouldbe no one left with whom onecould tend and shape the world.”“Power is a gift. That is thisbook’s central, controversial idea.”
