10/14/14 - Tyndale House Publishers book review - Abraham by Charles Swindoll

Abraham, one nomad’s amazing journey of faith by Charles Swindoll offers more than just Abraham’s journey, it offers ways to stay in tune to God’s timing.

I found this book to be very interesting even though I was familiar with Abraham’s journey.  Pastor Swindoll adds life to the story.  He includes timelines and tells us the present day area that Abraham and Sarah traveled.  He shows us the bald truth about Abraham’s journey, warts and all.  Abraham, like many of us, gets impatient; at times wanting to run ahead of God.  But one thing for certain, God will do what He says and He will do it when He does.  We can’t rush Him nor can we hide from Him.  Abraham found out that God even hears our subtle untruths, Sarah was kinda Abraham’s sister but utmost, she was his bride.  Pastor Swindoll lays out the ungodliness of Sodom and Gomorrah and their destruction, and why.  We see the looking for a bride for Isaac and the way Ishmael was blessed.  We follow from the time he was Abram to the end of Abraham’s life.

This is a wonderful book that would be interesting for any reader, believer or nonbeliever.

I received this complimentary copy from Tyndale House Publishers.
