Présentation de l'éditeur
Even though over the years, much has been written about faith, we believed it appropriate to conduct deeper research into the men and women listed in Hebrews 11, with the sole objective of understanding the different moments and situations that characterized the lives of these people.
Undoubtedly, the way in which we have tackled this work, even though it was no small task, above all in relation to the Biblical text, we believe was worthwhile for the inevitable benefit that will result towards understanding and assessing the characters that we are discussing in regard to their faith. We have no pretension of having made sensational discoveries and much less to have penetrated into some type of forced interpretation.
We have kept ourselves, in our opinion, to an acceptable level, above all if the value of the Biblical text is kept in mind as we have studied and evaluated it. The reader will obviously not lack any advantage in a deeper examination of what we have written in this work. Biblical texts are quoted from the “New International Version” unless otherwise indicated.
The best that we can wish for all readers is that everyone, beyond benefiting from it, would know how to appreciate and consider faith, not simply from an intellectual point of view or bound by one particular denomination, but above all with Hebrews 11:6 in mind:
And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him.
