    "Do you find yourself struggling between wanting to do the right thing and wanting to do your thing? Between pleasing God and pleasing yourself? That's where we find Jacob and Esau, Leah and Rachel and where we'll find answers to the conflicts in our own hearts as well. According to Liz Curtis Higgs, "Jacob and Leah are perfect examples of God blessing the undeserving and loving the unlovable. Their story pours forth a generous dose of grace from a place we don't often expect to find it: among the pages of the Old testament." This is a verse-by-verse study of Genesis 25 and 27-29 as we examine the lives of Jacob and Esau, Leah and Rachel. All seven 30-minute lessons, plus the 3-minute promo spot and the 15-minute preview are on the DVD. Also includes a complete set of audio CDs of all seven lessons. The CDs also include a promo spot, a preview, and camera-ready art and promotional copy to download and personalize."--Publisher's website
