A Study of 21 Old Testament lives and what they mean to us today
From the introduction:
Millenia of history may separate us from characters we read about in the Bible, but it doesn’t take a PhD in imagination to apply the principles and example of their lives to draw inspiration for our own daily journeys.
FACE2FACE looks into 21 Old and New Testament lives. It was birthed through the ongoing grappling in my own life between what I see with my eyes and feel in my emotions, and what I understand in my head and believe with all my heart. The longer I have spent with these heroes, the more I have grown in admiration and love for them.
There will be plenty to chew over, as we meet in that great and glorious day when we will see, face to face, our Maker, our Redeemer and our forebears in person. For the time being we must look and see them but partially, as in a mirror.
