"Nourishing the Seed - Learning to Please God as a Father" is made up of 128 profound short devotional readings in which gifted Bible teacher Bob Mumford draws from spiritual nuggets and lessons he has gleaned from over a half-century of walking with God as Father. He uses the metaphor of the seed to help the reader understand Agape love in growing in a relationship with Father God.
These scriptural seeds when nurtured encourage and produce growth and spiritual maturity in the believer, providing additional nutrients through introspection on the thought provoking questions at the end of each reading. Application of suggested actions included with these "Thoughts and Questions" act as an agent of cultivation to encourage maximum growth during the period from germination to maturity and harvest.
A user friendly format includes diagrams and charts that help the reader visualize the key thoughts of the narrative and add to the overall understanding of the material.
Mumford is known for his desire to bring about reconciliation and unity among the family of God and for his worldwide ministry of prophetic teaching. "Nourishing the Seed" is written for anyone serious in their desire to follow Jesus and to grow in their relationship with God the Father.
