Item description for Bad Boys of the Bible: Exploring Men of Questionable Virtue by Barbara J. Essex...
Overview From Cain to Pontius Pilate, this book presents the stories of 7 well-known men of the Bible who are strong and weak, faithful and challenged.
Publishers Description This book presents the stories of fourteen, well-known men in the Bible -- who are strong and weak, faithful and challenged. Cain, Abraham, Moses, Samson, Saul, David, Judas, and Pontius Pilate are some of the men included.
Providing balance to her earlier book, Bad Girls of the Bible: Exploring Women of Questionable Virtue, Barbara J. Essex uncovers the life stories of the male "giants" of faith -- who have also committed outrageous acts.
Essex reveals a side of biblical men not often reflected or considered in most preaching and teaching. Their lives are a mixture of curiosity, shame, anger, sadness, and triumph. She presents the men in the context of their culture, leadership style, and basic human characteristics as they attempt to work on behalf of God and God's people.
The book contains:
-- 14 Bible study units on selected "bad boys" with an overview of biblical texts, context, and reflection questions
-- Suggestions for using this material in preaching and teaching
-- Bibliography for further study
This resource is informative, fun, and written for the average layperson who may not have extensive knowledge of the Bible.
