A persuasive re-thinking of the “sins” of the OT patriarchs from a covenantal perspective. While I’m not convinced of Jordan’s read on every individual story, Jordan’s overall view of Genesis stories is far more correct and helpful than the all-too-common moralistic condemnations of our fathers. Jordan helps us take a step back and remember that while sinful and fallen like all men, the stories of Genesis give us pictures of saints. The book rightfully replaces many patriarchs back in the record books as “heroes of the faith”, and removes the asterisks that we might associate with the steriods of sin.
