Culled from a larger, more expensive volume by the same authors first published by Eerdmans in 1994, this beautiful volume focuses on 15 biblical characters and gloriously presents not only their stories but also more than 200 art-historical images of them, along with searching commentary by the late theologian Dorothee Soelle and discussion of their post-biblical legacies in art and literature by historian Joe Kirchberger.
