Our Lord's Characters
Alexander Whyte's well researched collection of Bible biographies has been of indispensible use to pastors, study group leaders and students of the scriptures for over 100 years. It is the most comprehensive and most well respected source of material for understanding the characters involved in the events of the Bible ever published.
This is indeed the best exposition on Biblical characters ever written! Alexander Whyte reveals insights into the lives of the people of the Bible that casual readers might never find. Then he powerfully applies truths revealed in such a way that the reader is left spiritually convicted and seeking God's mercy.

Through the scriptures you meet the people of the Bible. But through Alexander Whyte you will come to know them better. Next to the Bible, you will find Bible Characters the greatest help in understanding the men and women in God's Word. Whyte writes brief biographies faithful to the Biblical text. Without stretching the truth, he stretches our minds to embrace the character of the individuals revealed there. He is never superficial. He writes like a modern newspaperman in terms of human interest and deep insight. It's just as though he had interviewed an individual and returned to the newspaper office to write up the feature! The reader of these works will not be disappointed as they will walk away with a deeper and greater understanding of those men and women God used in his Word as examples for us all.
