Jacob: Wrestling with God (Pulpit Legends Collection) 

The story of Jacob’s life portrays victories as well as failures. Jacob’s journeys are some of the most intriguing life journeys in all of Scripture, for in these journeys Jacob experienced several revelations from God. Through these revelations Jacob learned to follow God–to hear His word and obey.
With a conscious intention of breaking down the artificial walls of time and prestige, F. B. Meyer introduces us to the real man behind the mystique. He portrays Jacob as completely human–with the temptations, frailty and failures common to all of us. “The Bible,” Meyer says, “does not hesitate to tell us the very worst about its heroes; that we may better magnify the grace of God….”
In biographical style, Meyer’s comforting words will help you discover the numerous passages of Scripture where God calls himself “the God of Jacob.” The author seems to take speical delight in this paradoxical title, which links God’s holy nature and protective strength with the frailties and weaknesses of Jacob and all mankind. After reading Jacob: Wrestling with God, you should have little doubt that God can do for all of us what He has done for Jacob if only we are willing to make a complete surrender to God and seek the fullness of His spirit.
About the Author
F. B. MEYER (1847-1929) was an internationally known British minister of the Gospel, a public servant, and an evangelist for more than sixty years. A good friend of D. L. Moody, he began preaching at Christ Church in London, when there were only 100 regular attendees. Within two years he was preaching regularly to over 2,000 people. Charles Spurgeon once spoke of him, saying “Meyer preaches as a man who has seen God face to face.” Meyer was also active in the temperance movement, worked to close more than 500 houses of prostitution, and formed a prison aid society. Meyer authored more than 40 books, including biographies, devotional commentaries, sermon volumes and expository works. He also authored several pamphlets and edited a number of magazines.
