Editorial Reviews


"A Father Offers His Son will stimulate your mind and encourage your soul. You will be refreshed by the analysis of this familiar account from Genesis 22. Good theology is a wonderful, enjoyable read. There are excellent insights about that event on Mount Moriah, and they will challenge your thinking. This work lifts up our Lord Jesus Christ, and it will deepen your appreciation for what He and the Father went through to bring us back into fellowship. I highly recommend it."
Dr. Paul Benware--Professor of Bible and Theology, Pastor, Conference Speaker, and Author

"Genesis 22 is a tough passage for Christian skepticsand even some believers to accept. The way Scott LaPierre unfolds the messageof this passage in A Father Offers His Son: The True and Greater SacrificeRevealed Through Abraham and Isaac offers the reader assurance and trust in TheLord God. God's great love for us, demonstrated through Christ, is foreshadowedin the Genesis story of Abraham and Isaac. God asks Abraham to sacrifice hisonly son. Genesis 22 is a prophecy of the New Testament; God sending his onlybegotten Son, Christ, to be sacrificed on behalf of the sins of man. LaPierreapproaches the meaning of the Genesis 22 passage with biblical clarity andgodly wisdom.

It is clear that LaPierre knows the Bible and is in touch with God daily. Frompage one, the reader realizes that this author has spent countless hoursstudying God's Word. As a Christ follower myself, I appreciate the way LaPierreunfolds Genesis 22 with the larger scope of the Bible and God's love for us inmind. I could not agree with LaPierre more when he states that God wants us toappreciate his love. Ultimately, Jesus' love and sacrifice will be glorifiedfor all eternity. LaPierre provides the opportunity for us to appreciate God'slove by putting the reader into Abraham's sandals. I could almost picturemyself walking up the mountain and laying one of my own at the altar.

Although God is full of mercy and his love unending, God's wrath will beeternal for those who neglect the name and sacrifice of Jesus Christ. That iswhy it is so important for us to realize God's purpose behind the meaning ofGenesis 22. We must look at this passage as a parable of God's love andsacrifice. God intentionally planned to include the story of a father who wasasked to sacrifice his son in the Bible, as a means to help us relate to andrealize the greatness of what God did for us in sending his Son."
--Readers' Favorite Five-Star Review

"Abraham's intended sacrifice of Isaac is a rare and poignant picture of the unfathomable cost to the Father Who sacrificed His Son for us.This book is a wonderful and touching treatment of that passage. As a jeweler holds a gemstone in the light and turns it slowly, examining each priceless,shining facet, Scott LaPierre holds high this picture of heaven's sacrificial love, and he slowly, unhurriedly, examines its every detail. 
A Father Offers His Son is beautifully Biblical, incredibly insightful, and remarkably readable."
Cary Green--Speaker, Missionary,Church Planter, and Senior Pastor of Cornerstone Bible Church

"I read A FatherOffers His Son over the weekend, because once I started I couldn't put it down.It is a great work! Anointed by God! I was enlightened to see things I hadnever seen before. At times I wanted to sit and cry out of appreciation forwhat our Savior did for us, and other times I wanted to shout and praise Him."
Dana Hoffman--Book Reviewer

"Pastor Scott LaPierre writes fromthe heart. He reflects on the parallels between Abraham offering Isaac and Godoffering Christ as a sacrifice. Scott will walk you through chapter 22 ofGenesis to show you the parallels., Without giving up too much information,this book will break down who Isaac and Jesus were, why they were bothsacrificed in the same place, and their places in both the Old and NewTestaments. You'll see why their stories overlap, and how Abraham and Isaacprefigure the final sacrifice for God's people. Each chapter ends withquestions and answers that will challenge you to grow closer to God anddiscover the true purpose in His relationship. This makes the book perfect fora group Bible study or personal use."
Will Howell: Blogger, Book Reviewer, and Author

From the Author

I pray this book exalts Christ's sacrifice in your life and draws you closer to Him!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, concise explanations that make the Word of God come alive
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on September 1, 2018
I loved this book.

It doesn't simply explain the story of Abraham and Isaac, but takes us on a journey through the passageway of Genesis 22 into the epic story of redemption. Section by section, verse by verse LaPierre shows rather than tells how nearly every detail of Abraham’s sacrifice points to and illuminates God’s sacrifice of his own Son to save mankind.

One of the best aspects of the book is the way LaPierre subtly equips us to be better Bible readers as he guides us through the story. He frequently offers clear explanations of Biblical concepts, like this example from chapter 3: "Psalm 16 is a Messianic Psalm, which means that even though it was written by David, it can be read as though Jesus is speaking." That is the most straightforward, helpful explanation of the term "Messianic Psalm" I've ever read.

But what really makes this book special is the way the Bible retains its authority throughout. The reader gets the sense that he is not "listening" to someone speak about God, but is being ushered into the Word of God to hear God Himself speak. LaPierre writes as a pastor, not a professor with a theory to promote. His concern is not to get his own point of view across, but to show us what the Bible really says and means. And as we read, it is persistently clear that what we are reading has direct and profound implications for our lives. This is why the book is a thrill to read. We come away more amazed at God, with greater trust in his Word, and deeper wonder at the story of redemption. If you have any desire to know God or understand the Bible better, then follow LaPierre to God's amazing story of redemption through Abraham and Isaac and this wonderful little book!
