After reading Courageous Faith: chs. 1 - 6, choose the Old Testament hero with whom you most identify (in either a positive or negative light). In an original thread, describe how you identify with this hero, highlighting the parallels between their life, circumstances, and relationship with God and your life, circumstances, and relationship with God. As you consider these parallels, reflect upon the way in which the hero's life illustrates possible solutions to your own situation or circumstances. If you have no situation that requires a solution, then reflect upon how the hero's example may enhance your faith and relationship with God (or others). Don't forget to use the questions in the "Ask Yourself" section at the end of each chapter; these may assist you in developing your thoughts for your essay.

I was shown that instead of running from God and making him...
