Living in the Gap Between Promise and Reality: The Gospel According to Abraham, by Iain M. Duguid (Series: The Gospel According to the Old Testament)
The Women’s Ministry of New Covenant Presbyterian Church encourage all the ladies to join in on this exciting study led by Lisa Beth Smith and Beth Wise. We meet on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of each month at the Shepherd’s home. Childcare is offered three doors down at the Sage's home. We begin at 6:30 p.m. and finish with prayer promptly at 8:00 p.m. We also offer Zoom access. This study is easy to “pop in and out of” so if you miss a week or so, you won’t be lost! For suggestions about where to purchase your book, or information about the study or childcare locations, or Zoom access, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Description: God made Abraham glorious promises, but the patriarch still spent years living in a gap between their fulfillment and his day-to-day reality. We can often relate to him. Working through the Genesis account, Iain Duguid shows how Abraham, in both his faith and failure, points to Jesus and the gospel, providing an example and a profound encouragement for us today.
