…”and the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “AND ABRAHAM BELIEVED GOD, AND IT WAS RECKONED TO HIM AS RIGHTEOUSNESS,” and he was called the friend of God” (James 2:23). This is the premise behind the thoughts contained in Anne Graham Lotz’s book, The Magnificent Obsession / Embracing the God-Filled Life. As Anne walks through the life of Abraham, she paints a vivid picture of a very real man who walked by faith (most of the time), and not by sight. Taking the principles learned through Abraham’s journey, readers of this work will be encouraged to apply these same principles to their personal lives.
This book will challenge its readers to examine personal desires, thoughts, and actions with the truth of God’s Word as the guiding plumb-line. Accompanied with a complete study guide which walks through the pages of scripture along with a DVD session lecture, Anne’s book has captured my attention and “re-captured” my focus toward my own Magnificent Obsession with the God of Abraham.
