Product Description

From the Back Cover

Illuminating the Bible, one intriguing life at a time
Alive, authentic, and utterly unpredictable, the people and personalities of the Bible are not the two-dimensional figures of Sunday school flannel boards but the living, breathing, animated human beings who participated in God's grand story. They loved, worked, and worshiped. They married, mourned, and manipulated. They murdered, betrayed, and begged God for forgiveness. In short--they are us.
"The Biographical Bible" offers you an engaging overview of Scripture through the lens of the fascinating people who populate its pages. Through insightful reflections on the lives of over eighty individuals, this unique book captures the essence of these colorful characters, warts and all. The perfect companion to personal or group Bible study, and also endlessly entertaining, this lively narrative brings the Bible to life as no other book does.
Come along on this chronological tour. Far from being ancient and irrelevant, these stories are timely, provocative, and most of all, illuminating.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I loved this book. I'd had it in my wish list for a while and finally purchased it with some birthday money. I am training to be a Lay Reader in the Church of England and this book gives an insight into some of the main characters of the Bible. The author uses many different articles written by a number of different learned people to help you think differently about the characters. It has definitely helped with my essays and Bible study
