A Man of Colossal Faith in the Face of Overwhelming Tragedy
Job, a study in pathetic tragedy . . . a hapless victim of unfair treatment. His disastrous circumstances overwhelmed him. His boil-covered body tormented him. His so-called friends belittled him. His distraught wife discouraged him. Even God seemed to desert him, letting Satan have his devilish way. And Job sat patiently by, enduring it all. Not a portrait of a hero. Or is it?
Could a man with ordinary internal fortitude stay faithful as Job did? Could a wimp endure the excruciating pain, suffering, and loss that this man did? No hero? Think again.
After a year of focused research into the life of Job, Charles Swindoll says, “Job appears boldly in the ancient book of the Bible that bears his name, and yet most of us have not taken the time to examine his life in depth. But a careful study of Job’s life will convince us that this is another of God’s amazing men with heroic character qualities worth emulating.”
Travel with Swindoll into the world of Job: A Man of Heroic Endurance. “Even if it was written in Scripture long ago, you can be sure it’s written for us.” So pay close attention to Job’s life. Who knows what God will do next in your life?
Would you rather be a person of significance or a person of prominence? Think carefully! The answer to that question will shape your entire future.
Pastor, teacher, and beloved author Charles Swindoll says, “Somehow life has taught us poorly. We’re trained to think that the most significant people are star athletes, actors, and musicians—the ones we applaud, those whose autographs we seek, those who have worldly renown.
“They aren’t. Not really. Most often, the people really worth noting are those who turn a ‘nobody’ into a ‘somebody’ but never receive credit.” What is forgotten far too often is this: Success in God’s kingdom and in the church depends upon faithful people the public rarely knows.
The Old Testament contains numerous fascinating stories of forgotten lives—unsung heroes whose actions, sacrifices, or battles failed to ascribe them worldly renown. These great lives, however, reveal significant people whom God honors in the pages of His Word and, therefore, deserve our serious attention and emulation. Adino took out eight hundred armed, skilled fighting men with his sword. Eleazar attacked the Philistines by himself for so long that his comrades had to pry his sword out of his grip. Shammah, while his companions ran like scared cats from their enemies, stood his ground—alone—and was victorious. And yet, did you recall any of their names? They’re not on the rolls of the rich and famous. Still, they are significant.
In this eighth volume of the bestselling Great Lives from God’s Word series, Chuck will examine little-remembered Bible characters and events. He will help you discover biblical principles and practical applications for living so that you can be who you are in God’s estimation . . . a person of true significance.
E.W. Bullinger’s classic work, Number in Scripture, is an invaluable guide to the study of Bible Numerics. Bullinger’s two-fold approach to the subject first examines the supernatural design of the Bible. He notes the amazing patterns of numbers and numerical features of the Scriptures that give evidence of their Designer. The second section highlights the spiritual significance and symbolic connotations of numbers which are repeated in different contexts throughout the Bible. An example is the number seven or the use of “666” in the book of Revelation. This study will provide a treasure trove of insights and practical applications for pastors, teachers, and Bible students.

David was a man after God’s own heart . . .
What does it mean to be someone “after God’s own heart?” David, Old Testament Shepherd, king, and psalmist, offers an answer in the shape of his own life.

Yet in other ways he was a most ordinary man–often gripped by destructive passion, rocked by family chaos and personal tragedy, and motivated by political expediency. How did David become the national hero of God’s chosen people? Why is he the one character in the Bible described as “a man after God’s own heart?” Chuck Swindoll explores the many facets of David. from his teenage years and dysfunctional family life to his overwhelming passion for God.
David’s life offers hope to all of us. It shows that God can do extraordinary things through ordinary men and women. And David offers an insightful perspective on what it means to be truly spiritual, to become like David, men and women after God’s own heart.
David is the first of a multi-volume series exploring great lives from the Bible. Chuck Swindoll wants to show us that these men and women became great when they placed themselves at the Lord’s disposal, allowing Him to develop within them the marks of true character: humility, purity, authenticity, and integrity. To live a life God considers “great” is within the reach of everyone who submits to Him.
