Item Description...
Overview
Must seem to many to be an astonishing thing for an author to ask his readers to join him in a study of the life of Jacob. Jacob lived a very long time ago. There were no computers. Jacob did not send or receive e-mail. There were no television sets, no VCR's, and no cars. What possible value is there, then, in the study of the life of a man so far removed from our own sophisticated times? Firstly, we study the life of Jacob simply because it is in the Bible. The Bible is a special book. The books of the Bible were written by men who were inspired by the Holy Spirit of God. Secondly, every Christian can identify with Jacob. Jacob is indeed a picture of us all. We all come into this world with a nature that makes us oblivious to the things of God and engrossed in ourselves. Thirdly, Jacob's God is the God of all believers. Jacob's God is our God. God is the hero of every story in the Bible. God is certainly the hero in the story of Jacob.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Good intro to the life of Jacob  Sep 26, 2004
Ellsworth has to be one of my favourite authors for books to use in my quiet time. He has written a number of really helpful books: Strengthening Christ's Church, He is Altogether Lovely, and The Shepherd King, to name but a few.

I was really looking forward to studying Jacob; the title really does speak straight to the heart of any Christian - at least it should! It's easy to look down on Jacob because he was so obviously a flawed man; extremely blessed and extremely flawed. But then the mists clear and you realise that we have more of Jacob's problems than we would care to admit, and perhaps less of his admirable qualities than we would like.

Ellsworth does a good job of getting you into the life of Jacob and the circumstances he found himself in. I learned a lot of lessons from the life of Jacob that I hadn't seen before and started to appreciate him in a different light. But more, I started to appreciate my God in a different light. Jacob's continual backsliding is met with the persistence of God's grace in bringing him back. Without God Jacob would have been "a blot on the pages of history, but God had other plans". How true for all of us!

Incidents that had perplexed me in Jacob's life were made clearer, and Ellsworth applies the lessons well to Christian life today. One thing I liked was that he keeps bringing us to see Jesus and the blessings we have in Christ.

The only downside was that perhaps the book wasn't as in-depth as I would have liked. But perhaps that's because I had high expectations since I've enjoyed and benefitted from Ellsworth's other books so much. Nevertheless it is a good introduction to the life of Jacob and the faithful persistent grace of God.
