Biographical Sketch of the Author
Frederick Brotherton Meyer born in 1847 in London, England had an illustrious career that spanned several decades. He received his education at Brighton College and Regent’s Park Baptist College; at the age of twenty-three, he accepted his first pastorate position. Upon his death in 1929, Mr. Meyer contributed 20 books including scripture biographies, sermons, and devotionals.
Summary of Contents
As an introduction to Moses’ journey of faith, Meyers gives the reader a description of the characteristics necessary for a man to be truly faithful to God. These are a sense of helplessness, absolute assurance of being on God’s plan, entire consecration that He may work out his will through heart and life, the daily food of promise, and a daring to act on a faith that reckons absolutely on the faithfulness of God (Meyers 2). Meyers thought Moses an ordinary man, one that just happened to possess an extraordinary faith. The story that Meyers relates, begins with an account of Egyptian customs; the oppression of the Israelites being one of his main concerns. He gives insight into Moses’ birth; Amram knew from a dream that Moses would deliver Israel from Egypt.
Moses adopted by Pharaoh’s daughter, learned the courtier society of Egypt, he grew in knowledge, while gaining the insight to be a spectacular leader. He possessed honor and diplomacy, always keeping in his heart the words his mother whispered into his ear as a child. He renounced his place in the royal court and insisted that he return to the people from which he came. This placed him in a precarious position, he turned his back on the Egyptians for the sake of honor; yet the Hebrews did not appreciate his actions, so he fled.
God called Moses with the sole purpose of liberating the Hebrews; Moses’ life prepared him for this mission of faith, yet he doubted God’s choice in him. Through Moses, God struck the Egyptians with plague after plague; the Pharaoh eventually bid the Hebrews to leave. The Hebrews left Egypt a weak people in need of spiritual and civil law; yet when Moses delivered them to the Promised Land they stood strong. Moses, due to his disobedience to God, never stepped foot into the Promised Land. He looked upon its beautiful sights as he lay on Mount Pisgah; God came himself to claim his faithful servant.
This book left me with a joyful feeling; troubled with doubts about God’s true will for my life, this book enabled a fresh new point of view. It renewed my confidence in making decisions; choosing to follow Christ is sometimes very confusing. What if making the wrong decisions denies the blessings the Lord intends, this book cleared my thoughts, and answered questions. “Unbelief never gets beyond the difficulties…it is always picturing them, dwelling on them; however, Faith, though it never minimizes the difficulties, looks them steadily in the face, turns from them; and looks up into the face of God, and counts on Him” (170). The book encourages a strong faith in God, the example being Moses and his family; if only we could have the faith of Moses, what would our lives be.
Mr. Meyers definitely knew how to write an inspirational book based upon the true story of a great man’s life, his ability to use the story of Moses in such a way that it creates a need in the reader to strive for such a faith. The author used the biography of Moses to emphasize his character flaws; relating the message in a way that the reader thought of Moses as no more or less than himself. “We make a profound mistake in attributing to Moses extraordinary qualities of courage, and strength of body or soul. To do so is to miss the whole point of the reiterated teaching of Scripture; they were not different from ordinary men, except in their faith” (1). We saw in the book, the story of Moses unfold, born into a family of amazing faith; he died a man of amazing faith.
A mystery surrounds the publication of Mr. Meyer’s books; the Library of Congress list more than

Euclid: Father Of GeometryEuclid: Father Of Geometry Euclid The Father of Geometry Very little is known of the father of geometry, also known as Euclid. Records show that he lived somewhere around 300 B.C., but that date is sketchy. He was a Greek mathematician and is probably best known for his work Elements. Since little is known about the personal life of Euclid, it is difficult to do a biography on him. His chief work, entitled Elements, is a comprehensive treatise on mathematics. It includes 13 volumes that entail s
Sexism in the Bible?Sexism in the Bible? Introduction The claim is often made that the Bible is sexist and that Christianity demeans women and makes them into second class citizens. While I do agree that sexism exists in Christian churches and that portions of scripture have been used to perpetuate sexism, the Bible does not condone discrimination in any manner. Men have cited verses about submission of women to keep believing women in their place.” Get out your Bibles and let\'s see what the Bible really says abou
Abortion Should Be Made IllegalAbortion Should Be Made Illegal Abortion should be made illegal. Abortion is murder, it is the killing of an unborn baby. In today\'s society, regular people are not allowed to go out and just murder someone for no reason, so why should doctors be allowed to murder unborn babies? Abortion is not merely the removal of some tissue from a woman\'s body....Abortion is the destruction of an unborn baby. (O\'Connor 93) According to John C. Willke, president of the National Right to Life Committee,

Is Capital Punishment Biblical?Is Capital Punishment Biblical? Capital punishment has always been an arguable issue and for good reason. The Old Testament clearly calls for the death penalty on many occasions, whereas; many of the teachings of Jesus and others in the New testament readily denounce it. Therefore, both advocates ands opponents of capital punishment have Biblical references to support their beliefs. Opponents use the creation story to show that all are created in God\'s image. Genesis 1:27a states that “God crea

Religion was established from this belief, and it can survive and flourish because of this belief.
