In fact God has con- sistently chosen imperfect clay pots in which to place His light. David was a poor father. Peter had problems with integrity. Moses had anger issues Gideon struggled with fear and Elijah suffered from depressionthe list goes on. Messed Up Men of the Bible offers encounters with these ancient men who faced the same emotions and questions that contemporary men face in order to reveal fresh spiritual insights and hope for modern rela- tionships.
