Offering over 3,000 entries, Who's Who in the Old Testament provides an in-depth look at every character ever to appear in the pages of the world's oldest book. The vivid and readable style of this unique reference brings to life the women and men that populate the Old Testament, from Adam and Eve, through great prophets such as Ezekial and Isaiah, to rulers of the Holy Land such as Saul, David, Solomon, and the pharaohs. Each entry is based on the biblical text and set within the context of history and geography, as illuminated by the most recent research. Also provided is a particularly useful and lucid section on the Apocrypha, the collection of works that bridges the gap between the Old and New Testaments. Placing a vast and amazingly rich cast of characters right at the readers fingertips, Who's Who in the Old Testament is an essential companion to one of the greatest stories ever told.
