Greed, betrayal, fraud, sex, and violence--you'll find it all in a typical "beach read" novel, and in the Bible! Here's an unflinching look at the moral failures of leading biblical men and women, and how God redeemed each one in spite of the odds stacked against them.

These are "not the sort of stories we would tell in a children's Sunday School class," Pastor Spleth writes, "but they reveal profound truths about our relationship with God and each other.

"And here's a curious thing: A Bible beach read won't stop speaking to you when you finish reading it. I often find myself pondering the truth of a great beach read long afterward, because the point of the story hits home."
