  • All the People in the Bible really delivers on its title: youll find literally all of the Bibles characters in this comprehensive and fascinating reference work. From the first entry on Aaron to the final entry covering Zopar, Richard Losch details each person in a lively narrative style that will have readers sticking around page after page.

    The bulk of the work is made up of entries covering familiar and not-so-familiar figures found in Scripture. However, unlike most collections of this kind, the focus falls more on expanding our knowledge about the lesser characters. Losch explains that so very much has been written about the luminaries of Scripture that he chose to focus instead on those who are less well known and on some of the less familiar aspects of well-known characters lives.

    Names of people who are listed only in genealogies or who had no significant effect on history or legend are included solely in the appendix. The appendixs alphabetical listing of every person named in the Bible and Apocrypha includes pronunciation, brief identification, and where he or she appears. Those covered in greater detail in the main body of the book are identified in bold print.

    Loschs new and intriguing look at all the people in the Bible is anything but a dry reference work. This is a book to dip into and enjoy over and over.
