Abraham: One Nomad's Amazing Journey Of Faith, is a 267 page biography of the account of the Jewish Patriarch Abraham, based on the Biblical book of Genesis. It is an in-depth book for those searching for a deeper understanding of the Christian faith.
This was a challenging book for me to read in that it inspired reflection on my own faith. Do I believe in Creator God? Do I believe God is for me and not against me? For many years I delayed getting to know God intimately, thinking, "I'll have time for that in my older years." However, as Pastor Charles Swindoll points out, getting to know God intimately is a gradual process.
I found it interesting that Pastor Charles stated, "Few periods from ancient history are as well documented by artifacts and inscriptions as is the time of Abraham (pg 3)." I believe God planned it this way so we would have tangible proof of Abraham's existence.
Through the course of Abraham's life he learned to walk by faith and not by sight. The believer would do well to learn this as well. Something I am still learning. It's a daily process.
This is a very informative book on the life and times of Abraham. I would recommend it to the reader who wants a cohesive, yet appealing book on faith. I give this book 5* out of 5*

Charles R. Swindoll has devoted his life to the accurate, practical teaching and application of God's Word and His grace. A pastor at heart, Chuck has served as a senior pastor to congregations in Texas, Massachusetts, and California. Since 1998, he has served as the founder and senior pastor-teacher of Stonebriar Community Church in Frisco, Texas, but Chuck's listening audience extends far beyond a local church body. A leading program in Christian broadcasting since 1979, Insight for Living airs in major Christian radio markets around the world, reaching people groups in languages they can understand. Chuck's extensive writing ministry has also served the body of Christ worldwide, and his leadership as president and now chancellor of Dallas Theological Seminary has helped prepare and equip a new generation of men and women for ministry. Chuck and his wife, Cynthia, his partner in life and ministry, have four grown children, ten grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.
