Barton Jahnabout this book: When Abraham gets his calling from God to go to the Promised Land of Canaan…this not only presupposes that God talks to people and that we can hear His voice in the Spirit…but this also inaugurates a new way of life that superimposes an elevated worldview above that of worldly conventional normalcy and thinking.
With each step that Abraham takes heading south from the city of Haran toward Canaan…God is displacing whatever normative life Abraham might have lived in Haran…with a new life-script Abraham would not have dreamed-up in his wildest imagination.
The entrance of this new and unconventional worldview into the marketplace of ideas…starting around 2,100 BC and recorded in the book of Genesis in the Bible around 1,450 BC…needs an explanation as to the source of its origin.
One premise of this book is that neither Shakespeare, Twain, Steinbeck, Hemingway, Austin, or Follett would come up with a purely fictional concept of God displacing our ways with His higher ways and thinking (Isa. 55:8-9)…in complete contrast to the autonomous individualism of humanistic thinking.
One theme of this book is that this through-line of God-composed journey of faith life-scripts that displace our own ways with God's higher ways…is a repetitive theme in the Bible from Abraham in the Old Testament through Paul in the New Testament.
