Reviews of "Journeying With Abraham":

Journeying With Abraham Cover

"Joe Lenton has produced a useful resource for use by individuals and by groups wanting especially to make connections between the life of Abraham and the life of faith today.  With a mixture of background material and a plentiful selection of questions, the book helps us to journey with Abraham and to also journey deeper with God.  I commend it to individuals and to groups for their own journeying of faith."

(The Rev’d Dr. Ian McIntosh - Principal, Eastern Region Ministry Course)

"Are you looking for a fresh way of interacting with the Bible? Especially a way to learn from some of the great heroes of Faith? Then Bible Study material written by the freelance Theologian, Joe Lenton,may just be what you, or your 'small group' are looking for.

Under the series title 'Going Deeper With God' Joe Lenton has produced two books so far entitled 'Journeying with Abraham' and 'Journeying with Nehemiah'. His approach is similar in both books, namely:

1. A brief introduction to the biblical material with some useful background information.
2. A large number of questions which help the reader to look at the meaning of the passage, and its application to Christian discipleship.
3. Suggestions for further study, which take us into the New Testament as well as other Old Testament passages.
4. Some suggestions for prayer, which often prove helpful in summarizing the main lessons of the passage and their application to daily life

I used the material from 'Journeying with Abraham' for a month's devotional study, and found that I was stimulated to deepen my relationship with the Lord in a helpful and practical way. I warmly commend Joe Lenton's approach to Bible Study; the material he has produced will help us to engage with Scripture in a life-changing way."
