In the nine lessons of An Abiding Hope: The Presence of God in Exodus and Deuteronomy, author Janice Catron invites us to remember that the central actor in human experience is our God, a God who redeems, who brings liberty and fulfillment even when we do not deserve it, when we cannot redeem ourselves. The instructions in Exodus and Deuteronomy for life as a covenant community were extended to people who were on the move, who knew what it is to be strangers in foreign land. These teachings both invite and challenge us to consider our relationship with and responsibility toward migrants near and far. Imagine Janice Catron herself leading your group or independent study! Although Janice cannot lead or attend every group in person, this companion DVD allows her to ôvirtuallyö introduce each lesson of the Bible study in nine videos that correspond to the lessons in the printed study. Here, she shares additional insights and poses questions for consideration and reflection.
