For many evangelical Christians today, the story of Abraham—and indeed, the person of Abraham himself—is often relegated to realm of the distant past; a quaint story for children’s Sunday school or a relic of the Old Testament, irrelevant to our day. But the story of Abraham has a direct bearing on God’s redemptive plan for mankind. Abraham’s call, his trial of faith, and the blessings that were promised him are very much the inheritance of God’s saints in our era—and throughout time.
Author Roger Ellsworth uses his fifty years of preaching and teaching experience to guide you through the various stages of Abraham’s life and, as he does, you will discover the great riches given to those granted the gift of faith. His clear and concise writing will bring home truths that perhaps you have never seen before, and will want to share with others.
This book will open your eyes to the central role of Abraham in God’s redeeming purposes in Jesus Christ and give you a greater love and understanding for the unity of the Bible. What’s more, you may find in its pages your own spiritual struggles—and a sure way to victorious Christian living.
An excellent tool for church Bible study—or even personal devotions—this book will lift your spirits and draw you closer to the savior!
