Publisher's Description

Overcome deception with biblical perception.
Have you ever misjudged a situation that appeared desirable but ended in disaster? Have you been betrayed by a friend, coworker, or love interest? We all face challenging, heartbreaking experiences that require us to make important decisions. Unlike worldly advice, God’s advice is perfect.  
Why Bad Looks Good uses biblical wisdom to improve your perception of the people and world around you. Using relatable, real-life examples, career prosecutor Dr. Wendy Patrick teaches you how to:
  • assess people and circumstances clearly and accurately,
  • identify healthy sources of power,
  • surround yourself with trustworthy people, and
  • transform rose-colored glasses into reading glasses.
We are drawn to talent, wealth, and beauty, yet all of those things come from God. Apply his divine wisdom to live peacefully but proactively, compassionately yet carefully, and adopt a fresh, uplifting outlook on life.

She earned her doctorate in the­ology from the University of Wales Trinity Saint David and is formally ordained as a Christian minister through Converge Worldwide.

Editorial Reviews

Why Bad Looks Good is a powerful, highly practical primer on life’s most important lessons. In a world where dangers abound, Dr. Patrick's biblically grounded wisdom provides indispensable guidance for navigating the perilous tempests of daily life. She helps readers master the art of discernment and learn to detect red flags, spot green lights, and seize golden opportunities.
Judge Ken Starr
Former Solicitor General of the United States
For years I have said that the number one thing I pray for is discernment. If I have discernment, then so many other things fall into place. Just like Solomon who prayed for wisdom, which brought him other blessings, discernment is what we all need most today in this era of misinformation and intentional disinformation. Wendy Patrick—with not only a law degree but also seminary and doctorate degrees—is academically well qualified. Her spiritual discernment, emotional maturity, and street savviness qualify her to write this book even more. When Wendy speaks, we all need to listen. When Wendy writes, we all need to read. Read anything she writes. Especially this.
Dr. Jim Garlow
CEO of Well Versed
I can’t think of a more timely book on the issue of deception in a world that’s fed a steady diet of it. Dr Patrick’s career as a prosecuting attorney brings the harsh truths of her experiences as vivid examples of the how prevalent a problem it is. The sound wisdom within these pages are not only timely but could also literally spare you from lifelong grief and regret. A must-read!
Dr. Frank Correa
Academic Dean and Professor of Theology and Apologetics, Veritas International University
I can’t think of anyone better qualified to write this book than Wendy Patrick, whose years as a defense attorney, district attorney, and criminal justice consultant makes her an expert at identifying the bad disguised as the good. Her readable style, interesting case studies, and deep draw from the biblical wisdom tradition make this a fascinating read and a helpful guide.
Mark L. Strauss, Ph.D.
Author of Four Portraits, One Jesus and How to Read the Bible in Changing Times
Professor of New Testament, Bethel Seminary 
Today it's more important than ever to be discerning, clear-headed, and just plain wise. But it's difficult to do this since so much deception and wishful thinking is out there. As someone who has taught Christians how to think clearly, I believe Why Bad Looks Good helps us make good biblical decisions. 
Gary Zacharias
Apologetics Ministry Leader
As the subtitle of this book promises, Wendy shares the simple, practical truths of the Bible and clearly delineates specific approaches for positive everyday living. And the illustrations she shares of real people and real experiences are not only amazingly appropriate and adroitly placed, but they also teach principles that any man or woman can utilize. She further lays out those steps of life that present opportunities for success individually, in relationships, and in business. In doing so, Wendy paints a picture of a balanced life, the daily walk that brings joy from beginning to end, and opportunities by faith for cloverleaf movements on the highway of life, helping readers get back on track and move past any momentary failure.
