Barton Jahnabout this book: In the biblical narrative stories of faith in the Old and New Testaments of the Bible…God is showing us His definition of what human life is supposed to be about…and this definition centers around journeys of faith designed to create the context wherein we can get to personally know God…and not journeys of self…designed to validate our self-worth as measured by material wealth and success…achieved through worldly conventional normalcy and thinking.
This is a revolutionary concept that offers an alternative worldview toward life's goals and purposes…that opens up the way for the living God of the Bible to insert into the lives of human beings…life-scripts that they would never dream-up on their own…or be able to orchestrate toward a successful conclusion using their own abilities and talents.
The second half of the cross…of God displacing our ways with His higher ways and thoughts (Isa. 55:8-9)…does not show up in literature by Shakespeare, Twain, Hemingway, Steinbeck, Austin, Agatha Christie, Robert Ludlum, or Ken Follett.
The only space within the broad range of the marketplace of ideas that a God-composed journey of faith containing this element of the cross…can be found…is in the Bible starting with the detailed life-plan of Abraham.
This book covers the common thread of the second half of the cross…as a through-line in the narrative stories of faith in the Bible.
