From Aaron to Zedekiah, characters in the Bible struggled with the same obstacles members of today's congregations experience. They provide great lessons, but busy pastors often lack time for in-depth research. In this helpful resource Wiersbe provides the historical context of each character's story and selected quotes from respected scholars, so that you can get your character study off to a great start. This volume will be of great help in preparing biographical lessons and first person sermons.
By incorporating biblical characters that have struggled with the same obstacles of faith, pastors, speakers, and teachers make it easier for their listeners to personally apply sermons and lessons.
More than just a dictionary of biblical characters, Bible Personalities gives speakers historical context for their messages and simplifies research. Warren W. Wiersbe presents people from Aaron to Zedekiah, offering selected quotes from respected Bible scholars on each character. By putting the thoughts and experiences of these great contributors to work, Wiersbe cracks open complex Bible characters and gives overworked pastors and teachers a simple starting point for effective communication.
