Publisher's Summary

The bundle covers the stories of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob with a bonus book on Lot, Abraham's nephew.

The Bible tells us that Abraham was God's friend and he was chosen to head up all of God's people, including us in the Church today.

They were not a perfect family, indeed, these stories will raise your eyebrows at times, they are so dysfunctional.

The story of Abraham is a journey through life. It is a journey all of us are called to make. The circumstances may be different, the location most certainly will not be the same route as Abraham took, but the journey we take will face the same problems and same distractions which would seek to sideline us. Therefore, it is crucial to study these characters. As Solomon said, “Nothing is new under the sun”. We can learn from these scriptures, which God has provided for us.

Isaac is like the Church today. He is a great man but achieves little.

The story of Jacob gives me hope. Jacob is no less than a rogue. If Jacob were alive in the twenty-first century, he would be one of those ruthless entrepreneurs who would take advantage of their staff and pay them a pittance. He would outwit his competitors and pull every trick in the book. Jacob would be the JR Ewing.

Lot escapes from Sodom and Gomorrah by the skin of his teeth.

Good Summary and Detail of the patriarchs

This hits covers all the Biblical narratives of each and provides the author’s take on the meaning and relevance. Although I might not personally agree with his emphasis, I do not disagree with the approach and support. The narrator is very good but mispronounced my understanding of the names of Esau and Laban. Thanks

reconnect with good principles from the bible

Nice book well narrated, those stories from the bible is a source of inspiration to us, as we see there is no perfect family, so there must be a hope for us too. But indeed it was nice to delve into the story and interpretation of the author of what is the importance of the lives of the Patriarchs. Sometimes we avoid to read the bible because in some sense it is complicated book with lot of analogies not so easy to understand or at least with more than one meaning, so getting into someone else’s mind and see things with their eyes, can be very enlightening with was the case for me in this book

Who are the prominent patriarchs in the Bible?

These four figures are known as the "patriarchs" of Judaism and Christianity and were among the first to follow God's will obediently. The stories of the patriarchs are essential to know and recall the rich inheritance of the Christian faith that extends thousands of years into the past. This book is a must-have for all those seeking God's approval and guidance in their daily lives.

Biblical history and characters well illuminated.

These books are perfect for the students of Old Testament history and characters. Each section follows a pattern: Scriptural reference, the story of the focus character and lessons for the modern evangelical church. I highly recommend it for those whose interests are in this arena.
