* Jacob and Esau, Joseph and his brothers, Lot and his kids . . . families in the Bible weren't perfect---just like many of today's families. But there's hope! Offering an up-close look at biblical characters, the Garlands encourage you to go beyond betrayal, jealousy, and insecurity in your relationships and catch a glimpse of grace in life's "imperfect places." 256 pages, softcover from Brazos.
Most Christians believe that the Bible holds the answers to their questions about daily living, and that reading the Scriptures will show them good examples to follow for their own lives. Think for a moment and try to list a few examples of healthy families in the Bible who are ideals worth emulating. Having trouble? The families of the Bible were far from perfect, and not so different in that regard from our imperfect families today.
In Flawed Families of the Bible, a New Testament scholar (David) and a professor of social work (Diana) take a real and close look at the actual families of the Bible. This honest book will inspire and encourage readers with its focus on the overarching theme of hope and grace for families, showing that it is in the "imperfect places" that we can catch a glimpse of grace. Perfect for pastors, counselors, and anyone in a flawed family.
