God's Unlikely Path to Success
How He Uses Less-Than-Perfect People
When many Christian readers think of the heroes of the Bible, they think about how “good” they were. They forget that….
Rahab was a harlot.
Jonah was a rebel.
Moses was a murderer.
Sarah was a doubter.
Peter was an apostate.
Esther was a diva.
Samson was a player.
Jacob was a deceiver.
And yet these eight men and women are among the Bible’s greatest heroes.
Dr. Tony Evans uses these prominent Bible characters to illustrate the truth that God delights in using imperfect people who have failed, sinned, or just plain blew it. These are men and women whose actions—or reactions—were not consistent with God’s character—and yet God met them and used them in the midst of their mess.
Readers will be encouraged about their own walk with God as they come to understand that He has them, too, on a path to success, despite their many imperfections and mistakes.
“This book holds important reminders many Christians need to hear and could be the inspiration they need to reclaim hope and purpose in their lives.”
“I should have known that anything by Tony Evans would be good… I had never heard a sermon or read a book that brought out so much of what my heart really needed to hear.”
“I loved how the author took prominent, well-known stories and showed new angles. He really brought home that God can do anything with anyone!”
“As you read one chapter after another you cannot help but have a better understanding of the Lord’s love.”
“Evans shows the reader that they have value and worth and that God calls…to use us where He puts us, no matter what our past is. It was a very liberating read.”
