This book tells the stories of 100 of the most important and interesting personalities that appear within the Bible's pages. The short and easy to digest articles are designed to appeal equally to those who know little about the Bible and to those who have a deep familiarity with it.
Encompassing characters from both the Old and New Testaments, the stories are set within a framework of family relationships that run throughout the Bible. Family trees illustrate the relationships between the people in the various stories, providing you with a clear sense of the underlying historical and cultural matrix out of which the Bible grew.
Through riveting stories, you'll get to know the Bible's most intriguing personalities--with all of their human frailties. Reacers cam view each character through the prism of beautiful fine art images. This book makes a magnificent accompaniment to Bible reading, and a wonderful addition to any church or Sunday school library.
