Life is hard and there are all sorts of pitfalls along the way. Nowhere do we find a more overwhelming chronicle of hard times than in the Bible itself. The Old Testament is a long record of the disappointments and disasters that came upon the people of Israel, our ancestors in faith. And therein lies the real story. . . . Best-selling Catholic author, and noted Scripture scholar, Dr. Scott Hahn helps us find our way in this new, short book.
