Publisher's Description

Fools, Liars, Cheaters, and Other Bible Heroes explores the diverse stories of 28 men and women of the Bible. Each chapter describes a different figure from Scripture and their unique combination of strengths, weaknesses, and circumstances. Through personal anecdotes and reflection questions at the end of each chapter, readers are encouraged to embrace their individuality and consider how God is inviting them, in their current circumstances, to participate in the reign of God. Through her many years of reading and studying Scripture, Hosbach has had the experience of having Scripture come alive as she identifies with aspects of the real-life people who happened to live 2000 years ago: this is the spirit of what she shares in this book. Fools, Liars, Cheaters, and Other Bible Heroesis an ideal resource for individuals who want to better know how Scripture relates to their lives today. It offers an easy-to-use format that can be read on a daily basis or periodically. The anecdotal style offers an opportunity for readers to grow in their faith by relating to well-known and lesser-known characters and situations of Scripture.

Editorial Reviews

Many think that holiness is the same as human or moral perfection. The Bible and Barbara Hosbach will show you that God has always used little and imperfect instruments to do good and Godly things. You would be a fool yourself not to get on board."
— Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M.

The best Bible guide I have ever read....A must read!
—Karen Kelly Boyce, author of Down Right Good

    This book is a wonderful reminder that God uses imperfect people to accomplish His plans. Barbara Hosbach's unique insights cause you to pause and meditate on as well as relate to these famous and not so famous bible personalities. The questions after each chapter provide for interesting group discussion and personal reflection.

    I thoroughly enjoyed Fools, Liars, cheaters, & Other Bible Heroes and look forward to sharing this wonderful book with others.
