Overview and Objectives

Lesson Overview

God does not abandon His rebels. He moves toward them to rescue and restore broken humanity. In lesson 4, Dr. Young will explore how God rescues his creation. We will take an in-depth look at Abraham, an example and model of how God intimately involves people in His mission of restoration. In an article, Dr. Bill Klein will examine our identity through the lens of I Peter 2:9. And graduate and pastor, Joe Serdinski, reflects on how his seminary journey helped him to take God out of a box.
