With an unreliable leader in the White House, and a political culture that sustains itself on sensationalism, it would seem we are living in a time of unprecedented instability. Not so, says the book of Daniel. The challenges of 2018 may be unique, but, as Rev. Dr. William Barber II reminds us in our cover story, "palace intriugue" is as old as the Bible itself. And, even amidst the machinations of narcissistic kings, there are always a few willing to stand up to the idolatry of power, no matter the cost.
