Overview

To do that we must spend time with and learn about Him. Through an exploration of thirteen Bible stories, Ryken offers an opportunity to do just that. Each story teaches a particular attribute of God's character; Ryken then presents doctrinal instruction on that trait, but also uses the biblical account to illustrate, explain and apply it to daily life. Though this contemplation of God may seem difficult, it is the most rewarding of all endeavors as it draws us nearer to our precious Lord.
