Rev. Abraham Park
May 17, 1928 - December 17, 2014
- Born in Sariwon, Korea
- B.A. in Corporate Management from Kookmin University, Korea
- M. Div. from the Presbyterian General Assembly Theological University, Korea
- Honorary D. Min. from Lael College and Graduate School, USA
- Honorary D.D. from Faith Theological Seminary, USA
- Honorary D.D. from Knox Theological Seminary, USA
- Former Moderator of the Hap-dong Conservative General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in Korea
In the early part of his 56-year ministry, Rev. Park spent 3 1/2 years of solitude in a cave atop Mount Jiri, where he devoted day and night to the Bible and prayer. Like the fathers of the early church, Rev. Park's ministry was not founded upon his knowledge acquired from theological discipleship, but upon his life of piety and faith. His insights into the Bible, which he obtained through the powerful illumination of the Holy Spirit, were materialized into the manuscripts that would later become the book series called God's Administration in the History of Redemption.
He attested with all his heart and soul that "the Bible is the living Word of God." As a bastion of conservative Reformed faith, he firmly taught that the Word of God is inerrant, infallible, and inspired by the Holy Spirit. Having read the Bible over 1,800 times, he is widely respected for his dedication, charisma, and unrivaled adeptness in biblical exposition.
His Bible-centered ministry reached fruition through his congregation whose lives are centered on the church and the Word of God. Their service and dedication for the church, which is the body of Christ, has left indelible impressions on many theologians and ministers from all over the world.

This is a reference map that is a MUST for Sunday School or Bible Study programs. We have all seen other maps of the Exodus journey, filled with question marks and dotted lines that are guesswork. This is the first definitive map with ALL 42 sites and the journeys correctly mapped. It is frustrating to have incomplete maps. Then the instructor is left to explain the gaps. This map goes with a book that explains every site and every route of the journey, called "The Covenant of the Torch: A Forgotten Encounter in the History of the Exodus and Wilderness Journey" by Rev. Abraham Park. The book is absolutely vital with this map - it provides, names, dates, places and events with incredible detail and accuracy. Everything is documented in the scriptures and provided spiritual explanations. This is very helpful for advanced classes and seminary training. It is also a great deal easier to read than the map provided in the book. You really need to spend time studying the map to appreciate the depth of knowledge contained in it.
This map and the books have been more than helpful as I have been reading. It allows me to put myself at the right place and in the right time to help me understand how this history pertains to me today. I pray for the author and all the efforts to distribute this enlightening helpful material in Jesus precious name.
