Abraham: Father of Faith and Works
He left his home, the bones of his ancestors and the false gods of his fathers to follow the God of glory. Excruciating trials, weary miles of desert travel, and even the command to offer his son Isaac as a sacrifice did not deter him. Mount your camels and ride back in time to discover Abraham, the only man called the “Friend of God.”
Born into a pagan family in the idolatrous city of Ur among ziggurat temples and foreign gods of Mesopotamia, Abraham heard the call of God and abandoned everything to go to the faraway land of promise. When required to offer his son as a sacrifice, Abraham held the course and pledged trust and obedience to God.
