An Abiding Hope: The Presence of God in Exodus and Deuteronomy—Ecumenical Edition
2013–2014 Horizons Bible study
By Janice Catron with Suggestions for Leaders by Martha Sadongei
In the nine lessons of An Abiding Hope: The Presence of God in Exodus and Deuteronomy, author Janice Catron invites us to remember that the central actor in human experience is our God, a God who redeems, who brings liberty and fulfillment even when we do not deserve it, when we cannot redeem ourselves. The instructions in Exodus and Deuteronomy for life as a covenant community were extended to people who were on the move, who knew what it is to be strangers in foreign land. These teachings both invite and challenge us to consider our relationship with and responsibility toward migrants near and far.
