The Bible contains a bewildering array of characters. Although the names are often familiar, little is known about their lives. This authoritative and wide-ranging reference work fills the information gap. Containing biographies of over 450 biblical characters from the Old and New Testaments and the Apocrypha, this lavishly illustrated new edition describes who the people in the Bible are, what they did and how they have lived on in the imagination, inspiring artists, musicians and literature through the ages. An invaluable reference tool, Who's Who in the Bible is now reissued with over 130 colour and black and white illustrations.
'The perfect monastic companion... A comprehensive dictionary of biblical characters and their contribution to literature and art.'
