Item description for Men In The Bible: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly by John F. O'Grady...

Overview
MEN IN THE BIBLE explores the lives of twelve men whose lives figure prominently in Scripture--six each from the Old and New Testaments. Throughout the text, John O'Grady is careful to keep these stories in perspective and focuses on the historical and archaeological evidence surrounding them. The profiles presented here represent the entire span of biblical history from Adam and Abraham to Jesus and his followers. Among them are such familiar figures as Moses, David, Jeremiah, Jesus, John the Baptist, Peter, and Judas. Apart from Jesus, all the subjects in this book have flaws--some of them quite serious. Often their noble qualities are obscured by such negative traits as pettiness, meanness, jealousy, anger, and pride. These bad and ugly aspects make the rough edges more than evident. Yet, these same individuals are bound together by a common faith in God. Even Judas must have had considerable talents and generosity to be included among the twelve disciples. As in biblical times, people today also represent a spectrum of traits, some good, some bad, and some downright ugly. But the author demonstrates that, because of the goodness of God, the bad and the ugly never eradicate the presence of goodness. He explains how such stories from the past can serve as examples for people today. By fully understanding the character of each of the men covered in this work, we can overcome the dark side of our natures and learn to become stronger and better people.

Reviews - What do customers think about Men In The Bible: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly?

Scholarship Made Accessible   Aug 10, 2007
Anything from John F. O'Grady is worth reading. Guaranteed! His many years of outstanding teaching experience, combined with an amazing breadth and depth of knowledge on the latest in reliable biblical scholarship, allows O'Grady to write in a way that immediately engages the reader. One of the most impressive features of all his books (such as Models of Jesus Revisited, The Four Gospels & The Jesus Tradition, Pillars of Paul's Gospel, Catholic Beliefs & Traditions) is his distinctive way of being able to encompass much without exhausting the reader. He boils it down without watering it down. A truly amazing and unique gift. At the same time, by relating the best of biblical research to everyday human experience, the content and temperment of his writing is truly interesting and inspiring. Men in The Bible: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly will ignite the reader's desire to learn more from this well recognized professor and author.
 
The Good, The Bad and The Ugly  Aug 2, 2006
The author takes 12 men in the Bible - 6 from the Old Testament and 6 from the New Testament - and goes into great depth about their character and their relationship to God and Jesus. As the title suggests, some are good, some bad, and some ugly in spirit. It gave me a new perspective on the lives and times of these people. It was very informative and had some humor in it also.
