Stories in the Bible demonstrate how God works through the lives of ordinary, very human, people just like us.
For millennia, the stories of the Patriarchs, along with several women, have been told from generation to generation in the Jewish community, shaping how God's chosen people understand their relationship with him. In People of the Bible Uncensored, modern Christians can get to know these legendary characters and the God who worked in and through them. Readers will be introduced to David, who wrestled with sexual temptation, and Abraham, who found it just as difficult to wait on God's timing as Christians sometimes do today. As they begin to see the ancients for who they really were, readers will be encouraged and challenged to trust the God who can accomplish extraordinary things through the unlikeliest of people.
