OVERVIEW

Jane Rubietta gives a fresh perspective on the Old Testament story of Isaac and Jacob through a three month devotional journey. Thousands of years ago God made a covenant with Abraham, and though the Old Testament characters fell short of upholding those agreements, God remained faithful to His promises and still offers us an inheritance that is bigger than our choices. These devotions are meant to offer hope and security for those who are seeking to find their identity and take part in the inheritance of God.

Rubietta does a great job of creating a new look at some of these “old” stories. She has also set up some very creative venues for encouragement in the “Note to Self” and the poems, “Traveling Mercies.” My only critique to these devotions is that they don’t offer any tangible goals. Rubietta is very strong in recreating a Bible story, but her devotions lack specific direction in application.
