Time and time again, God uses insignificant and desperately sinful people to fulfill his marvelous plans. In short, he uses people like us!
We find vivid examples of this truth in Isaac and Jacob, two men who couldn't live up to Abraham's example, let alone God's standards—yet God never abandoned them. Iain Duguid's study of their stories in Genesis shows us how the gospel triumphs not through human effort but through God's relentless grace. His exposition and application will encourage readers who grapple with their shortcomings in the light of Christ, as well as aid teachers in tracing the golden gospel thread woven through the Old Testament.
"Iain Duguid is both a first-class scholar and a gifted preacher. This book is theologically astute, Christ-centered, and extremely practical. A tremendous resource."
—Tim Keller, Senior Pastor, Redeemer Presbyterian Church
