Where can we find truly inspiring models of leadership, friendship, creativity, and humanity to guide and motivate us today? How can we deal constructively with human shortcomings that continually trouble our world?

Reflecting on 29 well-known biblical characters "including Moses, Abraham, Bathsheba, Naomi, Pontius Pilate, and Jesus himself" Herbert Driscoll shows how their strivings to live wisely, fully, and joyfully have timeless relevance for us.

In our daily struggles with faith and wilderness, self-worth and failure, courage and guilt, power and weakness, we share much with our biblical ancestors. Learning from their journeys with God can deeply enrich our own spiritual journey.
