Why Biblical Character Studies Are So Powerful

blog-featured-image-630x349

Moses. Noah. Ruth. Hezekiah. These biblical characters can seem larger than life. Their stories are so grand, their significance so great, it’s easy to forget they were real people—with real struggles—that God chose to use in spite of their weaknesses.

That’s one reason character studies are so powerful. Whether you’re studying for personal devotion or preparing a lesson or sermon, when you dive deep into the lives of biblical characters, you realize that there was nothing special to set them apart; God didn’t choose these individuals because of any intrinsic greatness. In fact, God delights in using sinful, flawed people who nevertheless turned to him in reliance on his grace. In short, character studies remind us that God uses messed-up people like you and me.

You Can Now Pre-Order Brand New Titles on Logos.com

pre order logos

Logos books are so much more than books. Each one is specially tagged to connect with the other resources in your Logos library and work seamlessly with Logos features. While this makes your Logos library far more powerful than a print library ever could be, it also means that producing a Logos resource takes a lot more time and money than a typical ebook.

In the past, that’s also meant that we didn’t always have the luxury of releasing a book on or near the ship date of its print counterpart. Until now.
