Obeying God's command to leave his own country, Abraham faced famine, war, and Pharaoh's might before settling in the Promised Land. But why are we still discussing the faith of this desert nomad thousands of years later? Shedding fresh insight on Abraham's story, Swindoll addresses that question and others in this compelling biography. 280 pages, hardcover from Tyndale.
When we rewind history back to Abrahams era, we encounter people who concocted false superstitions to explain the unexplainable. Powerful kings claimed to be gods, building massive pyramids to achieve immortality. Out of this mass of misunderstandings, one man emerged. The man we know today as Abraham not only claimed that one true Creator existed but also staked his entire life on this belief. Why, thousands of years later, are we still discussing the faith of this desert nomad? One of Americas most popular Bible teachers, Pastor Chuck Swindoll, answers that question and many more in this compelling and insightful biography that will inspire your own faith.
