The char­ac­ters and heroes of the Bible are some of the best known in all of his­to­ry. We encounter them again and again, in art, lit­er­a­ture, and folk­lore. Yet these Bib­li­cal men and women remain among the most elu­sive, enig­mat­ic and least under­stood of any heroes. 

Bib­li­cal Images, a col­lec­tion of twen­ty-five por­traits of Bib­li­cal fig­ures, explores what is hint­ed at in the Scrip­tures to help us under­stand these char­ac­ters from with­in, to ana­lyze their motives, and to appre­ci­ate their spir­i­tu­al expe­ri­ences and aspi­ra­tions. It is a sub­tle yet pen­e­trat­ing study of men and women of the Bible who per­son­i­fy pro­found truths about the human experience.
