‘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 as 'the friend of God', and this comprehensive study by John Lennox shows why.
Abraham is unquestionably one of the most outstanding and influential figures in world history. He had no political or military achievements, and he left no literary remains, yet today billions of people – more than half of the world’s population – claim him as their spiritual father.
Throughout the Bible Abraham is seen as a pivotal figure in God’s plan of salvation, and in this richly detailed account of his life and times, John Lennox helps us to see through mists of the past to the real flesh-and-blood man, with all his strengths and weaknesses, and to better appreciate all that Abraham stands for as a model of faith for today.
