The life of Jacob is a kaleidoscope of events, characters, and motives that has fascinated readers for generations. From the incident of the stolen blessing to Jacob's final trip to Egypt with his sons, the patriarch's path seems riddled with deceit and trouble. Though scholars often disagree about Jacob's personal character, it is what god says about him that truly matters for eternity. In Trusting God When Life is Hard, Paul W. Downey delves into Genesis, revealing God's perspective on Jacob. Along the way Downey unearths many precious truths about trust, obedience, and love for others. The life of this patriarch of Israel is a gripping story that will give you deeper insight into the man that God called "my servant whom I have chosen".
Downey interprets the life of Jacob based on what God has to say about him instead of what his critics (Esau and Laban) have to say. He presents Jacob as a man who was deeply committed to obeying God despite his circumstances.
