Patriarch, God-wrestler, deceiver and deceived—Jacob's life story consumes nearly half of Genesis. MacArthur's 12-week study shows how Jacob's "dysfunctional" clan illustrates God's providence, judgment, and mercy; and reveals key doctrinal themes of a father's blessing and God's sovereignty. Profiles offer deeper understanding of Joseph, Pharaoh's butler, and others. Includes extensive commentary and discussion questions for individual or group study. Scripture quotations are from the NKJV. 128 pages, softcover from Nelson.

Studies include close-ups of Joseph, Pharaohs chief butler, and others, as well as careful considerations of doctrinal themes, such as The Sovereignty of God and / A Fathers Blessing.
