Synopses & Reviews
The saints and sinners of the Bible give insight into our own lives. The stories of the characters of the Bible are more gripping than any novel. By observing the lives of these individuals—the decisions they made, the nature of their character—we are able to learn much more about humankind in general and ourselves in particular.
Observing the forgiveness of some and the condemnation of others, Louis Banks opens their stories upon the reader's heart and mind.
Louis Banks presented these studies before large Sunday night crowds in the First Methodist Episcopal Church of Cleveland, Ohio. More enlightening studies into humanity do not exist. Louis Banks' presentation of these saints and sinners of the Bible will challenge you to faith and righteousness.
These two books of sermons, now combined into one volume by AMG Publishers, will certainly cause the reader to examine their own life as the Holy Spirit reveals to each the adjustments that need to be made for one to admit their deficiencies, yes, even sins, that need to be confessed to God.
I was particularly impressed with the fact that the subjects and problems dealt with in Louis Banks' era (late 1800's and early 1900's) are exactly the same problems every Christian is confronted with in their life today. I recommend Saints and Sinners of the Bible be included in every Christian's library, for I know it will greatly benefit each one, and that many will continually refer to it in their daily lives.
