Ever feel like a hopeless sinner?

Look at the lives of Samson, Peter and Martha.

God used their imperfections, and he can certainly use yours--no matter how bad you think they are.

The Bible offers hope and encouragement through the testimonies of those that have gone before you. In this Christian Basics Bible Study, based on relevant stories from the Bible and on Never Beyond Hope by J. I. Packer and Carolyn Nystrom, you'll discover that just as these men and women of Scripture failed, they were also redeemed by God.

And God wants to do the same for you.
