Pastor Chuck Swindoll offers his insights as he explores the Biblical account of the life of Abraham. From God’s first words to Abram to Abraham’s death after a long, eventful life, there are lessons for all of us who want to know how to really follow God.
This biography of Abram/Abraham, like the Bible, shows us the good and the bad. This man of God was, after all, a man. In each chapter, Swindoll showcases one event and how that event developed character or revealed character flaws. By the end, anyone can see that Abraham’s life was a journey of faith--a journey with detours, disappointments, and delights.
I recommend this book to Sunday School teachers and church libraries. It is also useful as a supplement for individual Bible study of Genesis.
I received a free copy of Abraham from the publisher for my honest review.
