This all-new study, based on Dr. Mears perennial best-seller, invites readers to explore the world of the biblical Patriarchs in Genesis and journey with the ancient Israelites on their liberating exodus from Egypt to the Promised Land. Through 12 sessions of study, readers will get to know Adam and Eve, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, Moses and others, and see Gods timeline for Israels formation and salvation unfold. Plus, Dr. Mears signature approach to the sweeping biblical narrative is to focus on Christ, so readers will also come to understand how even the earliest events of Scripture point forward to Jesus and His faithfulness to us today. Each session includes questions for discussion or personal consideration, ideal for group or individual study, as well as journaling space for deeper reflection.

While Christian Education Director at First Presbyterian Church of Hollywood, she built one of the largest Sunday Schools in the world and wrote curriculum that was in such high demand that to publish it, she founded Gospel Light in 1933. Such notable Christian leaders as Richard C. Halverson, Luis Evans, Jr. and Bill Bright were among her students. Billy Graham said of Dr. Mears, "Her enthusiasm for the Lord Jesus Christ was contagious."Miss Mears went home to be with her Lord and Savior on March 20, 1963.
