About-

In this book, John Morgan-Wynne examines the very different ways in which Paul’s epistles, Hebrews, James, Luke-Acts, John’s Gospel, and Matthew’s Gospel utitiize the critical figure of Abraham, the father of the people of Israel. He explores the question of the extent to which various New Testament authors developed something already present in the tradition and the extent to which they molded their depiction of Abraham to suit their own purposes in novel and creative ways. The book also considers how the diverse New Testament depictions and interpretations of the patriarch affect the preaching of the Abrahamic tradition today.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Morgan-Wynne skillfully shows how the life of Abraham lights up the pages of the New Testament and becomes, as it were, the glue that binds the Testaments together. Scholarly, yet highly readable, the author presents a striking, nuanced exposition of the differing perspectives of New Testament writers and where they find significant meaning from this ‘man of faith,’ father of Jews and Christians. Written for all serious readers of Scripture, this book makes the case why our biblical forbears matter and in particular, how the patriarch Abraham must be foundational in shaping Christian thought and practice today.”

—Marvin R. Wilson, Professor Emeritus, Gordon College; author of Our Father Abraham



“In this comprehensive, learned study of the New Testament’s treatment of Abraham, Morgan-Wynne shows that the kaleidoscopic diversity of the first-century church’s readings of the patriarch’s life sprang from Genesis itself. Preachers following in the New Testament’s footsteps may tread paths of theological insight and spiritual renewal. By its careful attention to both the early and the contemporary church, this volume helps us all join the ‘ancestor of the faithful’ in the life of faith.”

—Mark W. Hamilton, Onstead Professor of Biblical Studies, Abilene Christian University
