Fools, Liars, Cheaters and Other Bible Heroes
by Barbara Hosbach
What was it like for Leah, whose husband preferred her younger sister? How did Ananias feel when the Lord sent him to heal Paul, a known persecutor of Christians? Why was Andrew content to remain in the background when Jesus chose Andrew’s brother Peter to lead the church?
Each chapter of Fools, Liars, Cheaters and Other Bible Heroes explores a different character from the Bible in a down-to-earth way. These very human men and women each had their own unique combination of strengths, weaknesses, and circumstances. In other words, they were just like us.
The Bible is filled with inspiring stories, but they can’t encourage us unless we read them. On the other hand, we may read the stories but feel intimidated or find ourselves asking, “What does that have to do with me?” Questions at the end of each chapter invite readers to identify with the scripture account, embrace their individuality, and consider God’s plan for them in the here and now.
Fools, Liars, Cheaters & Other Bible Heroes was written for anyone seeking to relate to the Bible in a more personal and relevant way. Questions for reflection and discussion make the book ideal for individual reading or group discussion.
