In His written word, with infinite wisdom, God has seen fit to include accounts, long and short, of the lives of many people. Much is to be learned from what is written about such a selection of individuals, and weighty consideration should be given to those biographical details that are made available to us. This latest publication in the popular Day by Day series provides helpful comments on the lives of well over two hundred people who figure, with some prominence, in the record of Scripture. Obviously, in such restricted space as is allowed in this modestly-sized volume, comments are made succinct, dealing with those salient features in their lives that reveal their true ‘character’.
In addition to its introducing a series of stimulating daily readings, this book will prove to be a helpful source of reference for all who would make a study of Bible characters.
