Saints and scoundrels in the story of Jesus
by nancy guthrie (Ladies only)
The story of Jesus in the Gospels includes all kinds of interesting people—some who claimed to be saints but proved to be scoundrels, as well as scoundrels who were transformed into saints.
Saints and Scoundrels in the Story of Jesus provides a fresh look into what shaped and motivated people such as John the Baptist, Peter, the Pharisees, Zacchaeus, Judas, Caiaphas, Barabbas, Stephen, and Paul. Each of their stories help us to see the generous grace of Jesus toward the worst of sinners more clearly. Guthrie explores the desires, motivations, flaws, and
limitations of "The Rock," "The Hypocrites," "The
Opportunist," "The Criminals," and others
One reader said, “If you have ever felt that the Bible belongs to another world, you must read this book. Nancy Guthrie’s compelling cameos will draw you into the lives of people whose interactions with Jesus are surprisingly like our own. These characters will speak directly to the realities of your life, giving you a fresh glimpse of all that can be yours in Jesus Christ. Get ready to see yourself in the scoundrels and, by God’s grace, become more like the saints.”
