One lone family, amid cultural and religious collapse, struggles to maintain faith in their time and for future generations. This ancient clan demonstrates the successful transition of faith that remains aflame for centuries. Communicating zeal for God that any Christian father can emulate today, this biblical narrative unfolds an obscure character’s life. In a time of spiraling moral and theological decline, this book encourages Christian families not only to stand but to pass the torch of their faith securely throughout generations. What can Christian families learn from one minor Old Testament man whose godly line still continues today? The answer communicates the strong and sure message of hope in The Promise of Jonadab.
