There Are No Strong People
Full Product Description
? We tend to think of ourselves as people who have strengths and weaknesses. The truth is that sometimes our strengths make us weak - we need to identify the counterpart weaknesses that our strengths create
? People tend to categorize others as good or bad. Most of us are a mixture of both - and we should be aware that we are capable of making stunning mistakes
? Church is an ideal environment for immorality to flourish - because our spirituality and sexuality are mingled together.
? What we play with will make playthings of us
- Samson ends up being celebrated by God, despite all his failings. Why?
More a journey of reflection and prose than a bible study on a character, There are no strong people will bring the tragedies and triumphs of Samson to life for our 21st century living.
'Riveting stuff! Jeff applies his unique 'tell it as it is' style to the familiar story of Samson and his unexpurgated interpretation is a compelling read.' - David Coffey

There Are No Strong PeopleMary Bartholomew, via The Good Book Stall
Jeff Lucas has looked into the life of Samson and drawn from it insights that were certainly a surprise to me. I thought I knew the story of Samson. Not so. Right from the preface you know you are in for an absorbing read, the author warns that he is going to ‘tell it as it is’ he tells us to ‘brace’ ourselves before plunging into the first chapter!
Jeff Lucas’ reading of the story is that Samson came from a dysfunctional family where the mother wore the trousers. She and her husband with their tribe, lived in fear of their oppressors the Philistines, and the Mother carried the social stigma of being barren. Then came an angel to tell her that she will have a son, but not only that the angel instructs her how he is to be brought up, he wont feel ‘hers’ at all. The way she tells her husband about this inevitably raises her husband Manoah’s suspicion and their relationship goes from bad to worse
With personal anecdotes and other stories woven into the story of Samson, Jeff Lucas teaches us about ourselves and our God. Samson’s whole life seems to be one of fighting and sex. He is not a man you would wish to know and yet..... God uses who He chooses in ways that we don’t necessarily understand. Samson was God’s choice for a particular job. A very readable book
