Product Description

God made Abraham glorious promises, but the patriarch still spent years living in a gap between their fulfillment and his day-to-day reality. We can often relate to him. Working through the Genesis account, Iain Duguid shows how Abraham, in both his faith and failure, points to Jesus and the gospel, providing an example and a profound encouragement for us today.

Publisher's Description

All too often we look at our lives and wonder, “Is this really how life should be for a Christian?” God has made glorious promises to his people in Scripture. Has he failed us when we suffer through sickness, unemployment, broken relationships, recurring sin, or other trials? Those caught in painful, stagnant, or simply unglamorous circumstances find a sympathetic figure in Abraham, who spent years living in the gap between promise and reality. Working his way chapter by chapter through the Genesis account of Abraham’s life, Iain Duguid shows how Abraham, in both his faith and failure, points to Jesus and the gospel, providing an example and a profound encouragement for us today.

Iain M. Duguid (PhD, University of Cambridge) is professor of Old Testament at Westminster Theological Seminary, Philadelphia.

Editorial Reviews

“If we preach or teach on any passage of the Old Testament and do not speak of [Jesus], we fail to mention the very thing that Jesus said the passage is about. . . . I am grateful for this eminently accessible book . . . which closes the gap between Christ’s redemptive work and the work of Abraham.”
“[Duguid] pulls the reader into the dramatic unfolding of the story of Abraham as a significant stage in the larger story of salvation.”
