Runaways, Running from God is a paperback 144-page book, written by Pastor Kevin J. Sadler.
In this book we will consider stories of some people in the Bible who ran away from God: the prodigal son, Onesimus, Jonah, Elijah, and John Mark. Each of them ran for different reasons, such as fear, sin, unbelief, worldliness, or hardheartedness. These examples of runaways teach us many things. We learn what they learned. We learn how they grew in their faith and how their attitudes and lives were changed by God.
Hebrews 4:12 reminds us that “the Word of God is quick [living], and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword.” The truths found in the biblical accounts of runaways are living and applicable, powerful and transformative, and sharp and challenging to the heart. Join us as we run away with them, but then get turned around in the right direction toward God.
