This was a very good read. I enjoyed it much. The author takes and writes about a story from the Bible when even then people questioned if there was really a God. Like today, so many had a hard time believing in something they could not see. This is also a story about faith and how far someone is willing to prove their faith and loyalty to a unseen God and not worship the idols that so many did during that time.

I really enjoyed this book. Maybe it was because I was in Afghanistan at the time and my surroundings combined with the storyline took me back in time to Old Testament days. I really felt like I was actually there. The story was a beautiful, life-like adaptation of the story I Abraham and Sarah. It brought the story to life for me.

This is the second in a series on the patriarchs by one of my favorite authors, Gilbert Morris. This one focuses on Abraham and Sarah. Reading a whole book about Abraham rather than a couple chapters brought attention to how long he had to wait for God's promises.

I thought that this was a really good book. It was written by a guy, and that is apparent by the style, in that Gilbert Morris goes into detail with guy's perspectives/feelings and he does so with girls, but he doesn't define them as well as women authors do.
