Book description
From the back cover: "Who's Who in the Bible offers a complete listing of every person who appears in the most significant collection of religious writings in history. Each entry included the pronunciation and meaning of the person's name, an approximate birth date when possible, Scripture references, and an account of the person's religious and historical significance. Some 4,000 individuals appear in all, with nearly 400 extended profiles of such significant people as Jesus, Moses, Esther, Isaiah, David, and Mary. Informative and easy to use, Who's Who in the Bible is the perfect reference for families, students, teachers--anyone interested in knowing more about the Bible."
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0895776189, Hardcover)

The pages of the Bible are filled with fascinating men and women - literally thousands of them: saints and sinners, the faithful and the foolish, lovers and liars, giants and generals, priests and prophets, the brave and the cowardly, heathens and healers, the pious and the pitiful. Sorting them out has too often been the task of scholars - until the publication of this beautifully illustrated, clearly written, easy-to-use book from Reader's Digest.
