Overview

Elucidates the progress made toward God’s plan to turn a small family into a mighty nation, in spite of Isaac and Jacob’s weakness and sinfulness. “Our God delights in writing straight with a crooked pencil,” says Iain Duguid. The lives of Isaac and Jacob are vivid examples of that principle. Time and again God displays his grace and glory by overcoming their weakness and sinfulness. In this latest addition to the Gospel According to the Old Testament series, we see once more how the message of Scripture converges on Jesus. Readers can take encouragement in the midst of their own shortcomings that the gospel triumphs not through human might or goodness but through God’s relentless grace.

Editorial Reviews

Timothy J. Keller
Theologically astute, Christ-centered, and extremely practical. A tremendous resource.
Sinclair Ferguson
Like manna in the desert to . . . Christians who struggle to come to terms with how to read the Old Testament.
(on the series)
D. A. Carson
One of the most urgent needs of the church is to grasp how the many parts of the Bible fit together to make one ‘story-line’ that culminates in Jesus Christ. This series of books goes a long way toward meeting that need. Written at a thoughtful but popular level, it deserves wide circulation.
