Overview

In this insightful volume, Iain Duguid pulls the reader into the dramatic unfolding of the story of Abraham as a significant stage in the larger story of salvation. Written for laypeople, study groups, and pastors, this lively survey of Abraham’s faith (and failures) shows us how the Old Testament patriarch foreshadows the perfect saving work of Christ. The story of Abraham was not intended merely as a moral example for us to follow. In fact, Abraham often demonstrated a wavering moral character. More fundamentally, Abraham is an example of sinners saved through faith by God’s demerited grace. When entering into a covenantal relationship with Abraham and his household, God passed alone through the animal carcasses showing that his relationship with Abraham was not dependent on Abraham’s performance, but was received by grace alone through faith alone. In this way, the story of Abraham culminates in the work of Jesus in which he took the curses of the covenant upon himself and secured covenantal union between God and his people by grace alone, through faith alone.

Jesus explained that all the Scriptures that had preceded him were about him. This means that if we preach or teach on any passage of the Old Testament and do not speak of him, we fail to mention the very thing that Jesus said the passage is about . . . I am grateful for this immensely accessible book . . . which closes the gap between Christ’s redemptive work and the life of Abraham.

Bryan Chapell, distinguished professor of preaching, Knox Theological Seminary
