The people whose stories are told here are all despised by someone, and But they all have opportunity for redemption. Some accept this redemption, some never do, and in some instances, we are left to wonder.
This small group study tells the stories of people from Scripture through a new lens—exploring the mystery of faith with a literary touch. The Bible does not tell stories that are unrelated to us. It's stories are our stories, and we are the people reflected in its pages. But it can be difficult to draw a parallel between our contemporary lives and those of ancient people.
The Named workbooks are specifically intended to help you see the familiar predicaments we face which are also seen in scripture, and to give you lenses through which we can see the implications of our actions and decisions. Become acquainted with the people identified by God in a story as particular as your own.
The Despised included in this study are:
- Leah - The Unloved
- Jonah - The Displeased
- Tamar - The Wronged
- Gomer - The Beloved
- Balaam - The Diviner
- Judas - The Remorseful
