This comprehensive chapter-by-chapter study guide to John Lennox's richly detailed account of the life and times of Abraham adds life and depth to our understanding of this pivotal figure in God's plan of salvation - both for us and for the whole world.
‘Abraham believed God, and God counted him as righteous because of his faith. He was even called the friend of God.’ (James 2.23)
Abraham is the only character in the Bible to be described in that way, and John C. Lennox shows us why. Throughout the Bible Abraham is seen as a pivotal figure in God’s plan of salvation, and in Friend of God Professor Lennox helps us to see through the mists of the past to the real flesh-and-blood man, with all his strengths and weaknesses.
This study guide to Friend of God is packed with thought-provoking suggestions for private reflection or group discussion, drawing out the many ways in which the story of Abraham can teach us how to live faithfully in a world of religious doubt and scepticism today.
