The Bible was given to us to offer hope and encouragement through the testimonies of those that have gone before us. Through this guide, we discover that just as biblical characters failed, biblical characters were redeemed. And God wants to do the same for us. The Christian Basics Bible Studies based on bestselling InterVarsity Press books take you through key Scripture passages and help you to apply biblical truths to your life.
