Review: Messed Up Men of the Bible

Messed Up Men of the Bible by Dave & Tina Samplesmessedupmenofthebible

Publication Date: January 26, 2016

The Bible is filled with stories of men who messed up but were used in mighty ways to further God’s kingdom. There’s Peter, described in this book as a “double-minded man” who Jesus called the “rock on which I will build my church.” Peter messed up when he denied Christ. He messed up when he cut off the servant’s ear. He messed up when he took his eyes off Christ and sank beneath the waves. But Peter was used mightily for God.

Over and over in Messed Up Men of the Bible, Dave and Tina Samples point their readers to the fatal flaws in men like Saul, Nebuchadnezzar, Solomon, David, and others. They also use stories from their own experience to illustrate the points they are making. Each chapter focuses on a separate person and the character trait that makes him a messed up man then discusses the ways that God redeemed these men to become witnesses to God’s strength and power and love.

This book would be great for a men’s Bible study group (or a women’s Bible study group). I appreciated the questions at the end of each chapter which focused my thoughts on the topic at hand.

Rating PG: The story of Absalom’s rape of his sister, Tamar, is told within the section on David and is probably beyond the comprehension of young readers.
