I’m grateful when I come across a Pastor or Bible study teacher who is sound in their theology because it’s rooted and grounded in the Bible. Pastor and teacher Gregory Brown is one of those men. He studies to show himself as a workman approved and accurately handles the Word of Truth.
That’s why, I was eager to read Pastor Gregory Brown’s newest Bible Teacher’s Guide, Abraham: Living the Life of Faith. I’ve been privileged to study the book of Genesis in-depth several times under solid Bible teachers. Even though I’m familiar with Abraham’s story, Pastor Brown shares some sound interpretation of the passages and brings some new insights in this man of God who is foundational to both the Jewish and Christian faiths. He does this through the sound exposition of the Scripture.
Not only does he examine Abraham’s life and his faith, both his victories and failures, but Pastor Brown helps the reader to ask some challenging questions and apply what they are learning to their own lives.
You may wonder, what you can learn from a man who lived over 4,000 years ago. Is his life relevant to you today in a much different day and age? I can answer that with a resounding yes. Abraham, who was called by God and is known as a friend of God, is a Patriarch whom we can learn much from.
Do you ever wonder if God still calls people today? As a Christian how well do you respond to trials? Do you know any believers who seem to be falling away from their faith or are friends of this world? Do you ever do battle with fear, doubt and discouragement? Ever find yourself struggling with a sin, time and time again? Can you have victory over that sin? What promises in the Bible belong just to the people whom God spoke to and which ones can you as a Christian know with confidence belong to you too? These are just some of the areas Pastor Brown delves in to.
If you want a quick one minute Bible reading for each day with a clever quote, this book may not be for you. But if you want to better understand the Bible and who God is as He has revealed Himself in the perfect and inerrant Word of God, Abraham: Living the Life of Faith may be just what you are looking for. If you want someone who will deal with you straight, someone who preaches the Word in season and out of season, someone who will reprove, rebuke and exhort you with patience and instruction, then I encourage you to read Pastor Gregory Brown’s newest Bible Teacher’s Guide – Abraham: Living the Life of Faith. This book would be good for a group study and also for the individual.
I would like to thank Pastor Gregory Brown for the opportunity to read Abraham: Living the Life of Faith. I was under no obligation to give a favorable review.
