Messed Up Men of the Bible

In his book, the authors Dave and Tina Samples, take men of the Bible and try to relate them to men in our lives today.    Tina and Dave Samples remind us  that the Bible is filled with a cast of men who struggled and fell, and yet were consistently used by God to accomplish His purposes.  These historic men faced the same emotions and questions that contemporary men face.  Through their lives, we can see just how God's power is perfected in our weakness, then and now.

The authors use personal stories to illustrate what they are trying to covey to their readers, and supply practical applications for them as well.

The book is well-written, and a good resource for counseling,  and for those who may be struggling with their Christian walk.   

It wasn't quite what I was expecting, but it does teach the reader a lot about grace, and forgiveness, and using these men's mistakes to help us in our own lives. 

I also don't understand why they consider Job a "messed up" man of the Bible, me, I think he was a blameless character, used by God to show us that we can be tested by Satan, and win.

All in all a good book with practical application.

I received this book free from the publisher. http://www.kregel.com I was not required to write a positive review and the opinions I have expressed are my own.
