Drawing on examples from the Bible, the author discusses the causes of spiritual failure. He addresses timely topics that are still relevant in the twenty-first century: Peter's overconfidence and its results; the calamities that followed King David's adulterous gaze; Miriam's jealousy and her terrible punishment; the outcome of Jonah's insubordination... But this is not simply a recounting of failures and consequences. Here are the great examples of God's redeeming grace at work in those whose foot slipped. It is a book of hope and encouragement, urging those who find themselves face down in the spiritual mud to get up and throw themselves at the feet of the One who forgives and restores.
