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.
