"F.B. Meyer's devotional studies on biblical characters reflect a rare depth of spiritual experience. These great figures were not so different from ourselves--sometimes weak, indifferent, willful. Yet they had their moments of faith, humility, and courage, and God was able to use these for His greater purposes. God's faithfulness, which not only accepts but transforms such inconsistency, calls us to more effective Christian living.
In the gray dawn of history, the first great Biblical character that captures our attention is Abraham. He commands our notice as one who was great through his faith. And that faith was at first but a silver thread, an insignificant straw - not stronger than that which trembles in the humblest and weakest believer.^^Sketching every period of Abraham's life, F.B. Meyer shows that wherever faith is, it is the link with omnipotence. It is the channel for the divine communications. And as faith is used according to the promptings of the divine Spirit and in obedience to His commands, it will grow. It did in Abraham, making him the "Friend of God." And it will grow in us.

Meyer was a popular convention speaker at Northfield in the United States, Keswick, England and Portstewart, Northern Ireland. Meyer was a man with a compassionate heart, prolific pen and graceful style. His writings are still widely read including Christ in Isaiah, Joseph: Loved, Despised, and Exalted, and in particular his Pulpit Legend Series and Classic Portrait series.-Editorial Review.
