Learn lessons you can use in your daily life from biblical giants - Gideon, Job, Moses, Caleb, Naomi, David, Solomon, Elijah, Hezekiah, Jeremiah, Daniel, John the Baptist, Martha, Peter, and Paul. Their problems, their doubts, their triumphs are so much like ours - and their stories like ours fit into God's plan. Hardcover, 222. From Jossey-Bass.
In Just like Us, a medical doctor, a minister, and a psychologist evaluate fifteen major biblical figures -- Paul, David, Naomi, Gideon, and Daniel -- and explain how, like them, we too fit into God?s plan. Just Like Us provides us with a meaningful way to bring the lessons of the Bible to life by helping us to identify with key figures of the Bible and apply their experiences to the everyday stresses and challenges of our lives. From these people who lived and worshiped God thousands of years ago we can learn how to live an inspired life today. While the pressures of our lives (telephones, traffic, and threats of nuclear war) are very different from those of ancient times, the life-and-death issues with which these biblical figures grappled are the same as ours.
