Details: Nine familiar stories. Seven men. Two women. All of them chosen and led by God down paths they never intended to take. No matter how deeply they held their faith, when they found themselves confronted by circumstances of life and the call of the Father, they faced the critical choice of every believer. Follow or flee? We see them as mighty men and women who walked with God. Passionate. Pious. Perfect. People who never wavered in faith, who never doubted God's purpose. God could use people like that. "Build a boat, Noah." Noah steadfastly built a boat. No questions. No hesitation. "Sacrifice your son, Abraham." Abraham blindly obeyed. No confusion. No anger. Every cherished children's story of the Old Testament depicts these characters as men and women of deepest faith. And, they were. However, the biblical writers shared little of the conflicting thoughts they must have experienced as they most surely struggled to reconcile the voice of God in their hearts with the voice of human reason echoing in their minds. What were they thinking? There is surely method in the God-inspired melody of Scripture. Leave the story vague. Let us fill in the blanks as the story unfolds in our hearts... in our time...in our lives. Let us learn to live as God desires us to live by seeing the world through the eyes and experiences of extraordinary, ordinary men and women of faith who most likely responded initially to the call of God with the same sense of suspended reality as we do today. When we begin to imagine these Bible characters as people not unlike ourselves, we can learn from them how to be instruments of His grace to a confused world...on both sides of the stained glass.
