Bryan Chapell, Christ-Centered Preaching (290)

A difficulty with much biographical preaching … is that it typically fails to honor the care that the Bible takes to tarnish almost every patriarch or saint within its pages. Without blushing, the Bible honestly presents the human frailties of its most significant characters so that we will not expect to find, within fallen humanity, any whose model behavior merits divine acceptance.
