Item description for Life of Abraham: The Obedience of Faith (Christian Living Classics) by Frederick Brotherton Meyer, Lance Wubbels & F. B. Meyer...
Overview In the gray dawn of history, the first great Biblical character that captures our attention is Abraham. He commands our notice as one who was great through his faith. And that faith was at first but a silver thread, an insignificant straw - not stronger than that which trembles in the humblest and weakest believer. Sketching every period of Abraham's life, F.B. Meyer shows that wherever faith is, it is the link with omnipotence. It is the channel for the divine communications. And as faith is used according to the promptings of the divine Spirit and in obedience to His commands, it will grow. It did in Abraham, making him the "Friend of God." And it will grow in us.

Reviews - What do customers think about Life of Abraham: The Obedience of Faith (Christian Living Classics)?
Life touching experience Aug 10, 2004
A beautifull contemplation of the life of Abraham, no references needed when you are studing a bible charachter, all that is needed is the bible. This book shows how Abraham got the status of being friends with God. It makes you want to go indepth with your relationship with God inorder to reach such status. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to reach new hights in their life with Jesus. This book changed the way I view life and I want to live my life.
Theology - not a reference work! Nov 3, 1999
This is a 192 page sermon based on the life of Abraham as given in the Old Testament. The only reference material used was the King James version of the Bible (and a certain amount of the author's speculation). This book attempts to use the life of Abraham to illustrate Christian theology. Book itself originally written approx. 100 years ago, rather than in 1996 when it was edited for publication. I strongly suspect all other works by F.B. Meyer to be in the same vein.
