Product Description

Abraham's descendants can appear troubled and dysfunctional. There's Jacob who steals Esau's birthright, or the brothers of Joseph who sell him into slavery. But the good news is that God is something of a magician who can turn evil into good, like the mythical alchemist who turned lead into gold. 112 pages, hardcover. Morehouse.

Publisher's Description

"God's goodness is bigger than all human badness," writes best-selling author John Claypool in this timely new book. "God's power and willingness to forgive are greater than our human capacity to sin." The Bible is often held up as a source of family values, but it is also full of families who falter and do so generation after generation. Few families have visited as much evil on each other as Abraham's descendants in Genesis. Using these stories, Claypool explores how God turns the "lead" of evil like Jacob's theft of Esau's birthright, and Joseph's brothers selling him into slavery in Egypt into the "gold" of abundant blessing, as alchemists were said to do in the past. God is always more interested in our future, according to Claypool, than in our pasts. In this book, as in his other books, Claypool explores the biblical texts carefully, and with a pastoral eye for the characters from Genesis and his contemporary readers. This book offers challenge and comfort to people who feel that their sins may be beyond God's concern and their lives beyond redemption.
