Review: Abraham: One Nomad’s Amazing Journey of Faith by Charles R. Swindoll

Review: Abraham: One Nomad’s Amazing Journey of Faith
Charles R. Swindoll
Tyndale House Publishers

Swindoll revisits the life of Abraham and shows that the faith journey of a man who lived many years ago is not that different from ours today.  This easy reading book does not mean that the author glossed over some important issues.  Life styles, decisions, attitudes, doubts---it’s all there along with the successes that Abraham experienced within the twenty chapters that Swindoll included in this book.

Do not attempt to devour this book at one sitting. There’s too much in each chapter to consume in that manner.  It would make a good devotional reading or a companion read to the Genesis account of the life of Abraham.  The final chapter title, Portrait of a Hero…Warts and Everything, (247) best describes the picture of Abraham the reader will find here and will presumably be encouraged by it.

One other thing I liked about this book that the publisher did---when the dust jacket is removed the hardcover beneath repeats the cover graphic.  Very nice touch.

This book was provided by the publisher in exchange for my review.
