In this historical accounting of the great patriarch, Meyer concentrates on the development of Abraham’s faith through the difficult times and successes and victories of his life. Abraham’s trust in God was strong when he left his father’s homeland; He learned even more fully to rely on God rather than himself, which is why he became the father of faith. Meyer delivers to his readers Abraham’s life with detailed attention to archaeological discoveries and cultural customs. However, he is also very focused on the spiritual principles for readers. The outcome is a complex portrait of one of the most significant characters in the Bible, a devotional biography for those who are “by faith, children of Abraham.”
