Personalities Of The Old Testament by Fleming James lands on the |> SALE <| shelves in my shop.
Charles Scribner’s Sons, 1939, Hardback in dust wrapper.
From the cover: The Old Testament is the greatest storehouse of biography ever written. Yet its very wealth in vigorous personalities has, to a degree, obscured the story of these mighty characters. Their inspiring histories have been so intertwined with the events of their day that, except to the most careful reader, the real individual has not been entirely clear. Now, in this vivid volume, Dr. James uses the straight biographical method and presents the immortal personalities of the Old Testament as leaders in the thought and action of Israel. Each one stands out in full view, against the brilliant background of Old Testament times and happenings, a vital, vigorous, human figure.
Such men as Moses, David, Hosea, Nehemiah, such women as Deborah these are the subjects of these biographies, each one built on a carefully explored and firmly laid foundation. And beyond the new insight into these numerous personalities, the reader has a stronger sense of the life and power that fill the pages of the Old Testament. Through these pages the reader gets the essential significance of the Old Testament, as revealed through its heroes.
