Living in the Gap between Promise & Reality (2nd Edition) (GAOT Series): The Gospel according to Abraham / January 01, 2014
Requires Accordance 11.2 or above.
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.
About the Series:
The Gospel According to the Old Testament series illuminates the good news of our Savior in the Old Testament books. Here you will find thoughtful, Christ-focused theology at an accessible level. This series aims to show, as Christ himself declared, that “all the Scriptures” speak of our Lord’s suffering and glorification.
From the Foreword:
“The Gospel According to the Old Testament Series is committed to the proposition that the Bible, both Old and New Testaments, is a unified revelation of God, and that its thematic unity is found in Christ. The individual books of the Old Testament exhibit diverse genres, styles, and individual theologies, but tying them all together is the constant foreshadowing of, and pointing forward to, Christ. Believing in the fundamentally Christocentric nature of the Old Testament, as well as the New Testament, we offer this series of studies in the Old Testament with the following aims:
- to lay out the pervasiveness of the revelation of Christ in the Old Testament
- to promote a Christ-centered reading of the Old Testament
- to encourage Christ-centered preaching and teaching from the Old Testament
To this end, the volumes in this series are written for pastors and laypeople, not scholars.”
