Item description for Wrestling with Angels: In the Grip of Jacob's God by Larry Lee Lichtenwalter...
Overview The Story of Jacob Is the Story of the Conquest of Self Born into a dysfunctional family, Jacob was a fighter. He was ambitious, clever, strong, resourceful, resilient, scheming. Nothing could take him down: not his hotheaded brother Esau, his conniving uncle Laban, his quarreling wives, or his fierce children. He would allow no obstacle to stand in his way. But one day he met his match. It happened on his way back home to face his brother, 20 years after cheating him out of his birthright. Esau bore a grudge, and he was leading a small army. Fear dogged Jacob's steps. In his anguish he found himself wrestling with a stranger he could not subdue. Maimed, he capitulated at last to the relentless pursuit of a loving God. We wrestle too. Not against flesh and blood, but with the ghosts of decisions past that have compromised our birthright. But as we grow with Jacob through the eyes of storyteller Larry Lichtenwalter, we find new hope to face our own fears in the grip of Jacob's God.
