About-

As Jacob once wrestled with an angel at Jabbok and refused to let go until he had been blessed, Calvin Seerveld urges readers in this collection of probing meditations to wrestle in faith with the God revealed in Jesus Christ.

Illustrated from the lives and words of men and women in the Bible, the devotions are arranged into helpful categories including History, Psalms, Prophecy, The Gospel, Apocalypse, Advent and Lent. The author draws out themes to which every Christian can relate, such as new beginnings; the value of time; communal life; and facing an unknown future. Ideal to dip into and return to again and again, these devotions will challenge your assumptions about God and the Christian life and encourage you to stretch towards God in faith.
