Jacob, Following God Without Looking Back
Jacob, Following God Without Looking Back, by Dr. Gene Getz, is a powerful and detailed depiction of faith bringing about reconciliation and peace in a highly dysfunctional family. Referring to this book, the late Distinguished Professor, Dr. Howard G. Hendricks adds that “By painting an honest picture of a dishonest man like Jacob—warts and all—God goes to the heart of our human experience….He shows us life in the raw—and how His grace and power operate in the midst of it.”
The Men of Character series of books provides an in-depth look at the lives of key Bible personalities. Author of the collection, Dr. Gene Getz, highlights the lives of men in the Bible and demonstrates that we can still learn from their relationships—both with God and man. His detailed and colorful descriptions of individuals, culture and events help bring to life the stories of the Bible so that readers can better understand how what happened many years ago relates to our lives today.
While many books offer little more than entertainment value and interesting information, the Men of Character collection is transformational. In this collection are many important lessons that have the power to change people’s lives, and by concluding each book with “principles to live by,” readers are able to apply the lessons immediately. Whether you read only one book in this collection, or all twelve, you will be blessed!
