Empathy For The Devil with JR. Forasteros

November 7, 2017

Empathy for the Devil: Finding Ourselves in the Villains of the Bible by [Forasteros, JR.]...Image result for empathy for the devil JR. Forasteros

The sins of wrath, idolatry, and abuse of power are closer to us than we think. How do we guard against them? We learn not only by following moral exemplars, we also need to look at the warnings of lives gone wrong.
In his new fictionalized narrative, Author JR. Forasteros reintroduces us to some of the most villainous characters of Scripture. He shows us what we can learn from their negative examples, with figures such as Cain, Jezebel, King Herod, and even Satan serving as cautionary tales of sin and temptation. Forasteros vividly tells their stories to help us understand their motivations, and his astute biblical and cultural exposition points out what we often miss about their lives. 
We soon discover that we might have more in common with these characters than we would like to admit. But by the grace of God, we can avoid their mistakes and be freed from our own villainous tendencies. Take a fresh look at the scoundrels of Scripture, and find sound pastoral guidance here to walk the path of righteousness.

This podcast was recorded in person with JR. Forasteros in Dayton Ohio in early October 2017. While the book was only available on pre-order then, it is now available to buy:https://www.amazon.com/dp/B076BTYDNT/ref=dp-kindle-redirect?_encoding=UTF8&btkr=1.
