Fools, Liars, Cheaters, and Other Bible Heroes explores the diverse stories of 28 men and women of the Bible. Each chapter describes a different figure from Scripture and their unique combination of strengths, weaknesses, and circumstances. Through personal anecdotes and reflection questions at the end of each chapter, readers are encouraged to embrace their individuality and consider how God is inviting them, in their current circumstances, to participate in the reign of God. Through her many years of reading and studyiing Scripture, Hosbach has had the experience of having Scripture come alive as she identifies with aspects of the real-life people who happened to live 2000 years ago: this is spirit of what she shares in this book. Fools, Liars, Cheaters, and Other Bible Heroes is an ideal resource for individuals who want to better know how Scripture relates to their lives today. It offers an easy-to-use format that can be read on a daliy basis or periodically. The anecdotal style offers an opportunity for readers to grow in their faith by relating to well-known and lesser-known characters and situations of Scripture.
