Product Description

It is F.B. Meyer's goal to encourage us to see that it is God who was the source of greatness for each. These were ordinary men who lived lives of extraordinary faith and dependence upon God. You will find encouragement and empathy in the depictions of these legendary men. In them we see clearly the growth in faith and the temperance of time that were gifts from a loving, nurturing Father—the very same one who loves and nurtures us. The story of Jacob's life portrays victories as well as failures. Jacob's journeys are some of the most intriguing life journeys in all of Scripture. Jacob experienced several revelations from God in his journeys, and in those revelations, Jacob learns to follow God—to hear His word and obey.

Publisher's Description

The story of Jacob's life portrays victories as well as failures. Jacob's journeys are some of the most intriguing life journeys in all of Scripture, for in these journeys Jacob experienced several revelations from God. Through these revelations Jacob learned to follow God--to hear His word and obey.
With a conscious intention of breaking down the artificial walls of time and prestige, F. B. Meyer introduces us to the real man behind the mystique. He portrays Jacob as completely human--with the temptations, frailty and failures common to all of us. "The Bible," Meyer says, "does not hesitate to tell us the very worst about its heroes; that we may better magnify the grace of God...."
In biographical style, Meyer's comforting words will help you discover the numerous passages of Scripture where God calls himself "the God of Jacob." The author seems to take speical delight in this paradoxical title, which links God's holy nature and protective strength with the frailties and weaknesses of Jacob and all mankind. After reading Jacob: Wrestling with God, you should have little doubt that God can do for all of us what He has done for Jacob if only we are willing to make a complete surrender to God and seek the fullness of His spirit.
