Product Description

Wrath, idolatry, abuse of power, these sins are closer to us than we think. JR. Forasteros reintroduces us to some of the most villainous characters of Scripture in this fictionalized narrative so we can learn from their negative examples. Figures such as Cain, Jezebel, and Judas serve as cautionary tales of sin and temptation. Forasteros vividly narrates their stories to help us understand their potential motivations, showing that we might actually have more in common with them than we would like to admit. Empathy for the Devil provides a fresh look at these scoundrels and provides sound guidance to walk the path of righteousness in the face of our ugly potential.

Publisher's Description

Do we have anything in common with the bad guys of the Bible? The sins of wrath, idolatry, and abuse of power are closer to us than we think. How do we guard against them? We learn not only by following moral exemplars—we also need to look at the warnings of lives gone wrong. In this fictionalized narrative, JR. Forasteros reintroduces us to some of the most villainous characters of Scripture. He shows us what we can learn from their negative examples, with figures such as Cain, Jezebel, King Herod, Sampson and Delilah, and even Satan serving as cautionary tales of sin and temptation. Forasteros vividly tells their stories to help us understand their motivations, and his astute biblical and cultural exposition points out what we often miss about their lives. We soon discover that we might have more in common with these characters than we would like to admit. Take a fresh look at the scoundrels of Scripture, and find sound pastoral guidance here to walk the path of righteousness.
