About the Book

Racism, greed, and politics: these are skeletons from the past that have come to haunt the Church, and the younger generations are demanding answers. In the United States, the African-American community holds the “white church” responsible for their plight with slavery. Throughout history, the Church has been under pressure to negotiate a secular compromise that nullifies its testimony. Is the Church going to continue in denial, or will it model the gospel’s transforming power?

Father Abraham has Many Sons and Daughters, highlights the Church as the family of transformed relationships. It focuses on transformation among the people of God and how it forms the foundation for our witness today. Traditional studies of how the gospel transforms individuals and communities focus on the believer’s character as the predictor of transformation. This book brings a needed balance by focusing on Kingdom relationships as the context of transformation through the gospel of Jesus Christ.

About the Author

“Father Abraham Has Many Sons And Daughters expands, deepens, and challenges us to embrace the dynamic concept of transformation. Dr. Rabih Sabra puts transformation in a broader and richer context by using it to describe the Body of Jesus Christ as a “family of transformed relationships.” As a member of the thousand-year-old Druze community in Lebanon, God has used him to establish the first church among this people group. The Access Team initiative has introduced and cultivated multi-dimensional personal, social, spiritual, and communal transformation. I can think of no place on Planet Earth where this ministry of change is not urgently needed.”
