Book Jacket:

Real people. Real messages.

A good biographical example can captivate listeners and impart a strong message. But many times these effective examples are hard to find, requiring in-depth research and more time than a busy pastor or teacher can spare.

Internationally known writer and former pastor Warren W. Wiersbe offers a valuable resource for effective sermon and lecture preparation. Opening up the lives of Bible heroes and heroines, from the well-known names such as Abraham and Jeremiah to the lesser-known Demas and Zedekiah, Wiersbe presents a wealth of helpful information in an encyclopedic format that's easy to read and easy to implement. Each entry includes a description of the context in which that person lived as well as how they related to others and to God. Quotes from respected Bible scholars demonstrate how these biographies have captivated audiences around the world.

Exploring Bible biographies is a perennial teaching technique because, through the lives of biblical characters, listeners and students can experience life change through their example. With Bible Personalities as your guide, you will discover how to deliver a message that will resonate to the core of each listener.
