Description

"Saints and Scoundrels in the Story of Jesus is convicting and comforting at once, reminding all true believers that God's family is rough around the edges and held together by grace."
--Rosaria Butterfield, Former Professor of English, Syracuse University; author, The Gospel Comes with a House Key

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. In Saints and Scoundrels in the Story of Jesus, Nancy Guthrie 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. Join her as she reintroduces us to these biblical characters, helping us to see more clearly the ways in which they reveal the generous grace of Jesus toward sinners.
