History of Redemption Series
Rev. Abraham Park, author of The History of Redemption series, is a true man of God who has dedicated his life to studying and sharing the Word of God. For him, The History of Redemption series is the fruit that resulted from endless research and prayer in an effort to better understand the Word of God.
This journey began about 50 years ago when Rev. Park began his ministry. With the determination to set himself apart from the world and understand the Bible correctly, Rev. Park devoted three years, six months and seven days on Mt. Jiri alone. During this time, he read the Bible and prayed fervently daily.
Since then, Rev. Park has read the Bible hundreds of times, devoting at least five to six hours to reading the Bible and praying every day. Now, in his 80s, he still spends sleepless nights praying tearfully for his congregation of thousands who are as dear to him as his own children.
Doctrinally, Rev. Park subscribes to the Westminster Confession of Faith and his teachings are founded upon Reformed orthodoxy and covenant theology. Moreover, the infallibility and authority of the Bible are the hallmarks of his teaching. His godly zeal to proclaim the Gospel has resulted in a 65,000-member congregation of Pyungkang Cheil Presbyterian Church in Seoul, Korea, where he now serves as pastor emeritus. He has also established hundreds of churches worldwide through which the Gospel is continually being proclaimed.
In 2007, Rev. Park celebrated the 50th Jubilee Anniversary of his ministry and the first book in the series, The Genesis Genealogies, was launched. As of 2011, a total of six books (out of the planned 12 books for the series) have been published. The series has been translated into many languages for readers worldwide, including English, Japanese, Chinese (Mandarin and Cantonese), Indonesian, German, Urdu, Hebrew, Singhalese, Tamil, Khmer, and Nepalese. The series reveals the mysterious and profound providence of God that the author discovered as he searched the Bible. The books aim to help uncover the truths contained within the Bible. Each page of his aged and faded manuscripts reflects God’s earnest desire for His people to understand the divine work of redemption manifested through the Bible.
