What Today’s Church Can Learn From the Bad Guys of the Bible

by Jonathan C. Brenner

Why read a book about biblical characters who messed up? Because we can learn so much from them by taking a close look at what led to their disastrous decisions and lack of sound judgment at critical times in their lives. Bad Guys of the Bible examines how anger, bitterness, greed, pride, an unforgiving spirit and a desire for vengeance led these men down dark paths that ultimately shipwrecked their lives.

As a remedy for such errant emotions, the book explains how we can apply the Gospel to critical times in our lives when our feelings tend to lead us away from the Lord. It all comes down to understanding God’s grace and the full scope of His forgiveness of our sins. It’s on that basis that we forgive others.

To help further integrate the powerful lessons we can learn from these men, each chapter concludes with thought-provoking questions to help readers apply solid biblical truths to their own lives through personal or group Bible study.

Jonathan C. Brentner is an author and blogger of topics related to biblical prophecy. He’s a former pastor and graduate of John Brown University (1975) and Talbot Theological Seminary(1978).
