Item description for All the People in the Bible: An A-Z Guide to the Saints, Scoundrels, and Other Characters in Scripture by Richard R. Losch...

Overview
All the People in the Bible really delivers on its title: you'll find literally all of the Bible's characters in this comprehensive and fascinating reference work. From the first entry on Aaron to the final entry covering Zopar, Richard Losch details each person in a lively narrative style that will have readers sticking around page after page. The bulk of the work is made up of entries covering familiar and not-so-familiar figures found in Scripture. However, unlike most collections of this kind, the focus falls more on expanding our knowledge about the lesser characters. Losch explains that so very much has been written about the luminaries of Scripture that he chose to focus instead on those who are less well known and on some of the less familiar aspects of well-known characters' lives. Losch's new and intriguing look at all the people in the Bible is anything but a dry reference work. This is a book to dip into and enjoy over and over.

Publishers Description
"More than any other book, the Bible offers an amazing collection of fascinating characters ranging from the holiest of the holy to some of the most depraved scoundrels imaginable. Many are mentioned only in passing, yet history and archaeology can often fill in the blanks and flesh them out as exciting human beings. For this reason we have in many cases been able to tell much more about them than the Bible alone reveals."
- Richard R. Losch (from the foreword)

All the People in the Bible really delivers on its title: you'll find literally all of the Bible's characters in this comprehensive and fascinating reference work. From the first entry on Aaron to the final entry covering Zopar, Richard Losch details each person in a lively narrative style that will have readers sticking around page after page.

The bulk of the work is made up of entries covering familiar and not-so-familiar figures found in Scripture. However, unlike most collections of this kind, the focus falls more on expanding our knowledge about the lesser characters. Losch explains that so very much has been written about the luminaries of Scripture that he chose to focus instead on those who are less well known and on some of the less familiar aspects of well-known characters' lives.

Names of people who are listed only in genealogies or who had no significant effect on history or legend are included solely in the appendix. The appendix's alphabetical listing of every person named in the Bible and Apocrypha includes pronunciation, brief identification, and where he or she appears. Those covered in greater detail in the main body of the book are identified in bold print.

Losch's new and intriguing look at allthe people in the Bible is anything but a dry reference work. This is a book to dip into and enjoy over and over.

Reviews - What do customers think about All the People in the Bible: An A-Z Guide to the Saints, Scoundrels, and Other Characters in Scripture?

All the People in the Bible  Feb 11, 2010
This book was purchased as a gift for my husband who teaches a men's Sunday
School class. He finds it a great help. It adds to the background information he can present and helps spark discussion among class members. It helps him to formulate questions as to how the lesson can relate to what is happening today and gives "food for thought" as to how we can deal with situations in our lives.
 
A book for every Bible reader  Nov 10, 2008
This book is a great source for information on anybody and everybody found in the Bible. It is well written and the author covers every topic in detail. He uses historical information to give the reader a total understanding on every person. He covers all the God's mentioned in the Bible as well as leaders, good and bad. This book is fantastic and hard to put down.
