One of the unique aspects of the Old Testament is how honestly it portrays the lives of believers. We see them, 'warts and all'. We watch them go through martial and family problems. we witness their triumphs and their sins, and we realize that many of their struggles are very similar to our own. Even though they live thousands of years ago, our lives are really not so different from theirs.As a result of a period of difficulties in his own life, Anthony Selvaggio began to consider how the lives of Old Testament saints could be used to assist believers today as we journey our way through the maze of life.This book is the fruit of that exploration. Here he shares what a select group of these believers can each us about a variety of common problems ranging from failure to fear, and how can extract lessons from their lives so that we can better live our own lives. But, above all, he also wants us to see that they all serve as signposts directing us to our glorious Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
