Reviews - What do customers think about Famous Jerks of the Bible?

Your Forgot one JERK  May 7, 2008
The author of this book forgot the biggest jerk of all...
this character was self-indulgent,jealous, murderous, had a taste for blood, forced worship, disrespected women, and even seemed genocidal at times. this character is simply referred to as god. funny that the author forgot about that character and countless other that did his biddings (moses, abraham, etc) well its a good thing that the bible was just a work of fiction. No one other than jesus, for the most part, in the bible is really an ethical or moral role model
Note from the author  Oct 21, 2002
This is a book for teens, esp. 12-16 years old, but many college students, even seniors, have read and enjoyed it. The 9-12 year old designation given on this site is misleading - the subject matter is not appropriate for that age group.

(I realize this is not a review per se, but I did not know how to contact you to correct this error!)

Thank you.

Brouillette Tackles Challenging Questions of Character  Oct 26, 2001
In her book Famous Jerks of the Bible, Margaret Brouillette introduces us to twelve biblical characters, giving them a chance to tell their own stories, in a witty and humorous was. The familiar stories of Delilah, Samson, Pharoah, Pilate and Jonah, among others, are given new life as she presents them from a different perspective. Each chapter also includes a series of questions that challenge the reader to take an in-depth look at issues such as humility, self-control, hypocrisy, selfishness and greed.

Teens in particular will enjoy this book. They will appreciate Brouillette's candid style, as she is not afraid to ask difficult, challenging questions. This book is useful for personal study and group discussion. Very practical in nautre, it will help anyone who wants to study the Bible and apply it to life.
