Recounted Stories of Genesis Speak of Faith, Finding it and Carrying it Along the Journey
Ronald Lee Ragotzy teaches about the natures of faith and honing it to spiritual wellness.
A familiar biblical setting involving a sly serpent and a vengeful brother, Raising Abel: The Life of Faith, takes us back into the first book of the Bible with profound insight. It talks of faith, understanding it, and creating the willpower to keep faith in our hearts despite life’s trials. We are taught that faith can be found as long as we seek it.
What is faith? Do you have enough of it or a lack of it? How do you know which state of faith you’re nurturing? There are degrees to faith - from a missing one, dysfunctional one, to a well-practiced one. And it is through a healthy faith that one may live righteously as an admirable, purposeful instrument of the Lord.
A familiar biblical setting involving a sly serpent and a vengeful brother, Raising Abel: The Life of Faith, takes us back into the first book of the Bible with profound insight. It talks of faith, understanding it, and creating the willpower to keep faith in our hearts despite life’s trials. We are taught that faith can be found as long as we seek it. This is the motive for author and physician, Ronald Ragotzy’s new novel.
In its contents, one will be enlightened by the teachings of Genesis 1-11. The book does not provide a simple summarization of the book itself, rather a deep perspective on faith, from the loss of faith, healthy faith, restoration of faith, to its practice and constant abidance. All this through Genesis’ wisdom. More so, the reader will come to understand that one does not need to be perfect in order to be deemed great or worthy, one merely needs to find faith, (to find it is to desire it) and carry it in our flawed world.
“In Genesis 1 and 2 we learn what healthy faith looks like. Then we learn what can cause this healthy faith to become dysfunctional. In chapters 6 through 9 we learn what we need to do to heal our dysfunctional faith. Finally we explore what we can do to maintain a healthy faith throughout the rest of our lives,” states the author.
Well-written with wisdom and introspect, any person can discover a new self, a renewed faith, and promise to keep it with them forever through this wonderful book by a God-fearing and inspiring teacher.
