Divinity & Religion: Bible Characters

   

Studying the characters of the Bible is a great way to learn about God's character and His ways of dealing with us. The following are lists of selected biographical resources covering Old and New Testament Bible personalities. Only collections are listed, not individual character studies.  To explore an individual person enter a subject search in the library catalog under the character's Biblical name.  For example, "Esther."

This material is divided by location and topic area then alphabetically, by author or title.  For more listings consult the library catalog under the subjects: "Bible--Biography." "Bible.O.T.--Biography," "Apostles," and "Women in the Bible."
