From The Publisher:

William LaSor introduces over 30 Bible personalities along with their backgrounds, their strengths and their weaknesses. Through them, the origin and nature of the Christian faith its claims and values become meaningful and real to the reader of today. Through identification with these men and women comes the revelation that God works in similar ways today...that He is a personal God and deals directly with people.

Careful attention is given to historical facts, revealed by modern archaeological research and from a broad knowledge of ancient literature. An extremely helpful volume for pastors, students, Bible teachers and those wanting a clearer understanding of the Bible.

About the Author
