Bad Boys of the Bible | Exploring Men of Questionable Virtue (Essex)
(In)Famous Men of the Bible
Barbara Essex reveals a side of biblical bad boys not usually reflected upon or even considered in most preaching and teaching. Adam, Cain, Abraham, Lot, Jacob, Jephthah, and Samson are well-known men of the Bible who were strong and faithful, yet also weak and challenged. In Bad Boys of the Bible: Exploring Men of Questionable Virtue, Essex takes readers on a journey to explore these male giants of faith.
Bad Boys of the Bible includes seven Bible study units, reflection questions, suggestions for using this resource in preaching and teaching, and a bibliography for further study.
