Reviews - What do customers think about Bible Personalities: A Treasury of Insights for Personal Growth and Ministry?
Biblical Summation Of Personalities Nov 10, 2007
Wiersbe pastorally flushes out the character traits of men and women from the Bible. It is a well-rounded and beautifully presented effort, but not an indepth study or overly-sophisticated. It targets the general audience in the pews.
The character of these persona are revealingly brought to our attention in short quotations. They produce lives etched in God's ways, or choose to lead fickle lives that somehow also fit into God's eternal design.
It offers great insight into true Christianity and real-life complexities, which Wiersbe spices with references from other commentators. A helpful guide.
Bible Personalities May 12, 2005
If you are a follower of Jesus who wants to learn how to follow Him more closely, there is much in Bible Personalities for you. The thrust is to show what we can learn by looking into the word of God for insights through the biographical sketches of people. Wiersbe offers his insights into over 60 Bible characters - some well known like Paul and Abraham, other less well known such as Demas and Zedekiah. Yet each has a life story that we can learn from, be encouraged by, and sometimes warned by.
Wiersbe also quotes liberally from some of the most inspiring Bible scholars and theologians such as Phillips Brooks, Charles Haddon Spurgeon and Alexander Whyte.
In studying and speaking about biographical characters, we are exploring what Wiersbe feels is most precious: character. This approach to understanding the word helps us look at what is most important to God: a person's character. Is the person obedient, or disobedient? Does the person listen, or tune out? Does the person learn, or refuse to be taught?
Whether teacher, preacher, or student, the reader will be blessed by what they find within these pages. Consider these words when writing about Job by Christopher Morley: "I had a million questions to ask God: but when I met Him, they all fled my mind, and it didn't seem to matter." (See Job 23:3, 4; 31:35)
