What People are Saying About This
"The Faith Factor is not just another how-to book on 'faith'; rather, it is a sagacious pastoral exposition of Hebrews 11. Ed Miciano from cover to cover masterfully narrates the lives of Hebrew ancients bridging contemporary times with golden-age truths to lead readers to embrace a lifestyle of faith."
Dr. Eloy Nolivos, Assistant Professor of Practical Theology, Oral Roberts University
"What an encouraging read! If you are new on your journey with the Lord, this readable volume will give you quick fuel for your new faith. If you are many years into your Christian life, it will lead you, as it did me, to reflect again on your faith and the depth of your commitment to Christ."
Dr. Robby Kagarise, Assistant Academic Dean,
S.U.M. Bible College and Theological Seminary
"As a pastor and teacher, Dr. Miciano presents in this book the biblical stories full of hard-hitting truths, reminding us of the historical and timeless sincerity of biblical faith. This book should be used by pastors, teachers, missionaries, cell group leaders, and all Christians to present to the world the truth about the basics of our faith. I commend this book without doubt, to read and share with fellow believers."
Dr. Ferdinand Melendres, Senior Pastor,
Word International Ministries-New York
"The Faith Factor confronted me in this stage of my life of thirty-six years in ministry and forced me to review where my faith stands today. Does our faith change? Can the years of ministry erode our lived-out faith and return us to an intellectual and infantile level of faith? This book will bring us to a journey of biblical stories of characters who exhibited true, tested, and lasting faith. The present-day illustrations provide familiar and new insights meant to challenge us towards a new assessment of our assumed state of faith. Our assumptions of a held faith may not be there and may not be what it used to be . . . This book can guide us to review and recover what we may have lost."
