Louis McCall Explores the Life and Legacy of Obed-Edom, a Minor Character in the Bible

The author introduces readers to the history and prophecies of the Ark and also connects them to one of the more obscure biblical characters – one that is easy to miss but whose reverence and role should never be taken lightly.

“Theirs is a story of honoring God and the things of God above all else.” Louis McCall, on the household of Obed-Edom

What do believers and historians know about the Ark of the Covenant? And what do they know about the person whose house became a temporary resting place for the Ark, as told in 2 Samuel 6:10–11 and 1 Chronicles 13:13-14? Believers are encouraged to increase their literacy on this aspect of Bible history by reading and reflecting on “He Chose the Glory: The Life and Legacy of Obed-Edom” (Trilogy Publishing; 2021) by Louis McCall.
“He Chose the Glory tells two intertwined tales. One account tells the history of the Ark of the Covenant and its ultimate disappearance, as a transition to the new covenant in the blood and body of Jesus Christ. The other account tells the story of Obed-Edom, his family, clan, and their descendants.
“I wrote this book because the Holy Spirit wouldn’t let me walk away from the life and legacy of Obed-Edom,” said McCall. “That is strange because I have never once heard a sermon on Obed-Edom.”
Who is Obed-Edom? Due to an act that provoked God’s wrath, King David became afraid and unable to complete the transportation of the Ark to the City of David, his citadel in Jerusalem. He placed the Ark in the nearby home of a man named Obed-Edom, a Levite, where it remained for three months. During the three months that the Ark was in the possession of Obed-Edom, the Lord blessed Obed-Edom and his entire household. When David saw that God had blessed Obed-Edom rather than curse him, his fear of transporting the Ark disappeared, and he went once again to retrieve the Ark properly (1 Chronicles 15:25).
In “He Chose the Glory,” readers will see how the descendants of Obed-Edom, were not only faithful but were used again, and again, and again, to preserve the Ark of the Covenant from marauding kings. “Theirs is a story of honoring God and the things of God above all else.”
