Item description for Men Of The Bible by Ann Spangler, Robert Wolgemuth & Bobbie Wolgemuth...
Overview Relive the Bible through the eyes of its best-known characters. Like its predecessor, the bestselling "Women of the Bible, Men of the Bible" focuses on the lives of 52 men in Scripture whose stories offer a fresh approach to understanding the Bible.
Publishers Description Men of the Bible takes a close-up look at fifty-two men in Scripture---complex flesh-and-blood characters whose strengths and weaknesses often seem strangely similar to our own. Heroes and villains, sinners and prophets, commoners and kings . . . their dramatic life stories provide us with fresh perspective on the unfolding story of redemption. Though our culture differs vastly from theirs, the fundamental issues we face in relation to God and the world remain the same. We still reach for great dreams and selfish ambitions. We wrestle with fear and indecision, struggle with sexual temptation, and experience the ache of loneliness and the devastation of betrayal. And, like many of these men, we long to walk more closely with the God who calls us into an intimate relationship with himself and who enables us to fulfill his purpose for our lives. Men of the Bible offers men and women today a unique devotional experience that combines five elements. Each week becomes a personal retreat focused on the life of a particular man: Monday: His Story---a narrative retelling of the biblical story Tuesday: A Look at the Man---focusing on the heart of the man and how his story connects with your own life Wednesday: His Legacy in Scripture---a Bible study on principles revealed through the life of the man Thursday: His Legacy of Promise---Bible promises that apply to his life and yours Friday: His Legacy of Prayer---praying in light of his story Designed for personal prayer and study or for use in small groups, Men of the Bible will help you make Bible reading a daily habit. Whether you dip into portions or read every page, this book will help you grow in character, wisdom, and obedience as a person after God s own heart."

Great Resrouce for Small Group Study Sep 26, 2006
I bought this book for my own devotionals when it first came out. The five-day format helped me not only hear the story of the Bible in a new light, but more importantly relate the trials of each man in the Bible to my own life. I have since used this book as the basis for our men's ministry Breakfast and Bible Study. The men involved have also said that it has helped them read and apply the Bible to their lives in a timely and manageable way.
Man's suffering for God's glory Nov 18, 2002
WOW! Here is a book that allows one to see how God can use anyone to do His work or pave His way. Having learned about these men as a child, Men of the Bible, allowed me to further relate to their sufferings and blessings. Men have been struggling with the same issues for centuries. What was their response to suffering and how their action plans all have allowed me to evaluate where I need to be as a follower of Christ. If you are looking for a daily Bible study about 52 men that breaks down Their Story, A Look at the Man, His Legacy in Scripture, His Legacy of Promise and His Legacy of Prayer....Men of the Bible has been a tremendous tool in my spiritual growth.
