The Bible says that "the just shall live by faith." Yet too many professional religionists fail to cross over from mere intellectual ascent to a life of total surrender to God and his will. In his exposition of Hebrews 11, Miciano explores the tales of men and women in the Bible who have lived lives of exceptional faith. Each story compels us to rethink what we know about God's ways and stretches our understanding of what it means to live according to what we believe. The Faith Factor offers fresh insight on how people today can enrich their spiritual lives by applying the timeless truths of Scripture to everyday life in the modern world.
