Living with Faith: The Good, the Bad and the Beautiful Then and Now
Living with faith in today’s world is not easy. Nor has it ever been. In this book, I have enjoyed offering some historical perspective on our biblical stories – what was happening concurrent to, say, Joseph, or Moses, or David, or Solomon … And while engaging with the surrounding world of the Bible and its characters, I also offer what one of my readers calls the “so what” of each passage. Living with Faith is a fun and informative read that will open your eyes to new insights and open your heart to deeper wisdom.
David Jordan has crafted a book that every pastor and layperson will want to have in their library. Focusing on key biblical characters, Dr. Jordan takes the work that most pastors have to condense into one brief sermon or teaching experience and expands it into a helpful, macro view with historical background that is thorough and reliable. He offers contemporary applications and enduring insights. This book will serve as a great resource for clergy and laity seeking depth for preaching or teaching. I highly recommend David Jordan’s Living with Faith.

In Living with Faith, David Jordan has provided a much-needed resource for anyone wishing to more faithfully and effectively interpret and apply the Biblical story. In one volume he outlines the big picture of the Biblical narrative, and helps the reader understand the “So What?” of each passage for today. This book will be helpful for individual study, laypersons teaching small groups, and even preachers searching for ideas and inspiration for next Sunday’s sermon.
