Studying the lives of men and women of Scripture is a satisfying and useful investigation for all true followers of God. As Augustine once expressed, "The sacred record, like a faithful mirror has no flattery in its portrait." The people of the Bible are exposed as the sinners that they are. While looking at heroes and villains of Scripture, the reader will not only learn about character flaws and attributes, but will discover practical doctrines that encourage us to live for Christ. The historic characters of the Bible teach us that choices have consequences and that the life we have been given must be dedicated to God's glory, not ours.
