We usually think of Bible characters as dressed in their Sunday best—lookin’ good, smelling of accomplishment, and holding the posture of unshakeable faith. We marvel at these “flawless saints” while thinking, “Wow! I’m not worthy!” Hey, not so fast. Believe it or not, the most celebrated people in the Bible were plagued by doubt, bad decisions, and less than perfect reputations. In a word, most were losers! And yet, God had plans that would take them beyond their humble, imperfect lives and dub them proud members of the “losers” club.
The Losers Club is a real-life look at famous Bible figures, such as Moses, Solomon, David, Thomas, Rahab, and others. Each vignette reveals people who struggle with weak faith, confusion, and frustration—people very much like you and me! These stories will help you connect with these flawed heroes, find encouragement in their stories, and get inspired by God’s love and care for “losers”.
