This extensive collection of more than 35 volumes, brings together the selected writings and sermons of at least a dozen famous authors and preachers, focusing on the well-known (and lesser-known) Characters of the Bible. Anchoring this collection is the title Bible Characters, by Alexander Whyte. Originally published in 6 volumes, this work presents expository and homiletic studies on more than 150 characters—both historical persons and fictional or illustrative characters (from the parables of Jesus, etc)—in an engaging and colorful way. In this electronic version, Whyte's work is accessible both in its original version, and as a topical dictionary, with each character available from the drop-down list in the "Topics" menu. Also included among the Works of Alexander Whyte are:
The Walk, Character and Conversation of Jesus Christ Our Lord, and
Bunyan Characters (4 volumes): lectures on the famous characters from the great works of John Bunyan (Pilgrim's Progress, The Holy War, and others)
Twelve volumes from the author's Biographical series, short devotional homilies and studies on each character—Abraham, David, Elijah, Israel (Jacob), Jeremiah, John the Baptist, Joseph, Joshua, Moses, Paul, Peter, and Samuel
Two volumes: Bible Characters, and Men of the Bible
The classic Greater Men and Women of the Bible (6 volumes), edited by James Hastings, presented both in the original version, and in a Topical edition (each character available from the drop-down list in the "Topics" menu).
This valuable collection is ideal for pastors and teachers in the Church, as well as for those who simply wish to learn more about various characters who appear throughout the pages of Scripture.
NOTE:OneTouch users who have a Professional or Discipleship Series should be aware that much of the content in this collection is already available in those libraries. However, you may still wish to purchase the Works of Alexander Whyte, the Kregel Classic Sermons series, or R. T. Kendall's A Man After God's Own Heart, all of which are available separately (see the links above).
You will find these titles available under groupings by author ("Works of F. B. Meyer", "Works of Alexander Whyte", etc), but also under the "General Books" category, in the Books menu. Many sections in these works will also be accessible by Bible verse from the Commentary menu as well (under "Additional Commentary Material"). For the Kregel Classics Sermons series, these should be found under the "Sermons" category in both the Books and Commentary menus.
