Product Description

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. Meet the great figures of the Bible—with all their follies, foibles, authenticity, and charm! Accompanied by informative sidebars and classic illustrations, Tucker's lively profiles of more than 80 characters from Scripture—including Adam, Eve, and their sons; Naomi, Ruth, and Hannah; Jesus; Paul; Mary Magdalene; and John of Patmos—provide a down-to-earth look at God's people.

Features

  • Chronicles the lives and times of over 80 Bible personalities
  • Covers the entire Bible in an appealing two-color format
  • Each chapter includes character profiles, sidebars, classic art illustrations, and ideas for further reading
