Fencepost Turtles

People Placed by God

A pastor once said: ‘When I was a schoolboy, we would occasionally see a turtle on a fence post and, when we did, we knew someone had put him there. He didn’t get there by himself!’ This book introduces us to a number of Old Testament Bible ‘fencepost turtles’ – people whose position in life was given to them by God to work out His divine purposes – and also brings some practical lessons and challenges from these examples for Christians today.

Jewish Old Testament characters include: Jacob, Joseph, Moses, Gideon, David, Esther, Daniel, Isaiah and Zerubbabel. (eBook, PDF)
