What is faith? Is it merely a crutch for the weak? Is it believing something even though you know it isn’t true? Is it right what people say: “As long as you have faith, that’s all that matters”? We can find answers to these questions and more in the Bible’s account of Abraham, the father of the Hebrew people and the spiritual forebear of all who believe. Described by the apostle James as “a friend of God,” Abraham stands out on the stage of biblical history as an example of faith to be imitated.

In this series, Alistair Begg invites us to come alongside Abraham on his journey of faith, from the moment God called him out from Ur of the Chaldeans through the ups and downs of his new life in God’s promised land. Although his walk contained many pitfalls and failures, Abraham learned that with God, failure is never final—and his trust grew with each new beginning as he responded to God in obedience to His call.
