Abstract:

Most failure among contemporary Christians is not caused by Goliath-sized problems. It is caused when we stumble because we have neglected to believe God and to obey the simple dictates of His Word. Elwood McQuaid takes believers into the arena where their persistent foes are met. The period of the judges was a time of national failure, spiritual disintegration, and moral decay. It was, in fact, a time startlingly like our own. This volume isolated the four "heroes of the faith" from the era of the judges who are found in Hebrews 11-men selected by God to turn the tide and deliver Israel. To man, they were problem-plagued and failure-prone. But mirroring failure is not the object of Not To The Strong, for the God who corrected, tempered, and forged these men into submissive instruments of His will can do the same for us.
