As we near the end of our earthly sojourns, often we look back on our journeys and reflect on the many peaks and valleys along the way. Moses led a stubborn people for forty years to bring them from Egypt to the Promised Land, but his mistake in not following Gods command prevented him from entering. Yet he was given permission to climb Mount Nebo and see the Promised Land before he died.
In Approaching Nebos Peak, author Eulie R. Brannan reflects on his ninety year journey as he, too, nears his own Nebos peak, imagining Mosess thoughts and intertwining them with his own. Dr. Brannan has spent a lifetime studying the scriptures, which has enabled him to draw on Bible characters and principles and share his insights with you; by noting how the lower peaks and valleys can help us make our last great climb to the top, he hopes that his spiritual autobiography will help you in your climb.
Like Moses, you may have spent a lifetime seeking the Promised Land. And as you climb to Nebos peak and see what the Lord has given, you will finally experience the excitement of a permanent homecoming.
