Whatsoever: The Musical Story of Abraham

Whatsoever logoThe Quintessential Man of Faith

by Mark Ogden

 

From the city of Ur to the pinnacle of Mount Moriah, Abraham’s story is the most pivotal in the Old Testament as it wraps up what has gone before and prepares for what comes after. It is a type, a foreshadowing of the New Testament and the sacrifice that will be asked of another Father and Son.
