There are countless benefits to be derived from studying Bible characters. They give an overall picture of the Bible, help readers to appreciate Bible history, and tie together the teachings of the Old and New Testaments. But many Bible dictionaries focus only on featured names and skip such characters as Abagtha, Eliphaz, Sihon, and Zuriel. Who were these people and how can their lives speak to Christians today? The Baker Encyclopedia of Bible People is a comprehensive who's who of Bible characters, touching on everyone from Aaron to Zurishaddai. Bringing together biblical materials on over two thousand people, this complete guide also offers the meanings and pronunciations of biblical names and a significant summary on each person. Nowhere will readers find a more complete resource that will make their reading of Scripture come alive.
