About this title


""Explore several of the stories of biblical characters who were seekers . . . The search by some of these people became watersheds for later seekers. For example, Abraham's search resulted in a clear understanding of radical monotheism. Ruth's seeking and searching challenged the notion that God's love and acceptance were tied to racial purity . . . Allow yourself to be a seeker as you read. May part of your seeking be to consider where your story and each of these stories intersect and may those intersections be places where you seek God and discover that already God is seeking you."" --from the Preface In Search of Faith is an exploration of biblical characters who struggled to define their faith. Roberts help readers to identify with biblical characters; to discover kinship with seekers of another era; and to read about themselves in the stories. Some of the biblical characters discussed include Ruth, Jacob, Peter and Hosea. The stories of these biblical characters can be used in a sermon series or a course of study for a small group. In Search of Faith can be a guiding force in the daily lives of seekers by addressing the quest for personal meaning and the desire to belong in community. Howard Wallace Roberts is a retired Baptist minister. He is the author of ten books, including Praying Like Jesus (The Pilgrim Press, 1999).
