Written alphabetically, these two books combined as one, provide entries for more than 3,000 men and 400 women. Both sections of the book, for men and women, are filled with fascinating information and insights.

In the first section of the book, there is an opening chapter entitled, 'The Romantic History of Bible Names' in which for example, the function, symbolism, and influence of Bible names are discussed.

In the second chapter, after a brief introduction, names are recorded alphabetically. A meaning is given for each name, usually with a prophetic application, and is accompanied by its biblical reference(s). For some,for example, 'Coz' there are only the briefest of biographical details, while for others, for example, 'Rehoboam', fairly extensive biographical details and insights with practical applications for believers today are included.

A shorter third chapter makes reference to 'The Great Host of Unnamed Bible Men' and this is followed by the fourth chapter, 'The Greatest of All Bible men, Jesus Christ.

In the second section of the book, there is a useful introductory chapter outlining the 'Life and Lot of Bible Women, including reference to polygamy, divorce and family. Detailed exposition is then provided alphabetically in the next chapter, for each named woman from Abi to Zipporah. Examples of subsequent chapters include: 'Nameless Bible Women', Symbolic and Representative Women'and 'The Ideal Woman Among Bible Women'.

In both sections of this double book, there are useful lists and indices. I have really enjoyed dipping into different chapters but am now looking forward to following the author's suggestions for more detailed study of a Bible character.

A valuable and insightful book to include in your reference library! Recommended.

Pleased with this because you can't tell how much details there is for each person before you buy; even with the description.
Obviously the better known people are covered in more detail than lesser well know people.
I would say this is a good book to help you find your way around the people of the Bible and have found it useful.

This book is just what l was looking for: a comprehensive guide not only to the general lives and cultures of men and women in Biblical times, but also identification and analysis of specific individuals mentioned in the Bible.
I haven't finished reading yet but this will be one of my prime reference sources for answering questions l have related to people l read about in my Bible study. It's alphabetical listing of character names means it is easy to locate information and the fact that it is two books in one is economical and convenient.
Clearly a great deal of research and study has contributed to the publishing of this informative and detailed volume, and it is encyclopedic in content.
Highly recommended.

Great value product. It is just what is described as at a really competitive price. Two books on one is tremendous value. Delivered really quickly.

I have many of this series by Pastor Lockyer and they have all helped me in my increasing knowledge of the Plan of Salvation and in my continuing walk with Jesus Christ towards sanctification.I also find the combined version of Men and Women (which I have too), very informative and Bible-based, as they ought to be

More a reference book for my christian library than a book to pick up to read. Difficult to review it apart from this comment.
