In the Press

"Isbouts has written an exquisite reference guide to the personalities in the Bible...The text is lavishly illustrated with art, photos, and maps that help situate the period and personalities under examination, a splendid presentation that sets it apart from similar works. Even if you own a comparable title, this well-researched and well-organized work will complement what is already on your shelf. For anyone interested in biblical studies, theology, and history, from general readers to seminary students." —Library Journal, Starred Review


“Who’s Who in the Bible is a delightful reference book. This textbook is filled with beautiful paintings, drawings and photographs from Genesis to Revelation…I collect books and this one surpasses any biblical reference book I have on my shelves.” –OrdinaryServant.com


“Who’s Who is a breathtaking compendium that belongs in the library of any religious history enthusiast.” –ParchmentGirl.com


"Impressive in size, depth and graphic appeal." -Baptists Today

Great resource for Bible study

Comments about National Geographic Who's Who in the Bible:

I bought this book for two reasons: other NG studies of the Bible have exceeded my expectations and I needed an additional reference tool to identify biblical characters. The sale price sealed the deal. On all counts I'm thrilled. Kudos!
