Review: "A comprehensive gathering of persons found in the Bible, including the Apocrypha, this book really delivers on its title: literally all of the Bible's characters appear in this reference work. The bulk of the book consists of Losch's A-Z articles covering the familiar and the not-so-familiar figures in Scripture. Names of people who are found only in genealogies or who had no significant effect on history are included solely in the alphabetical listing starting on page 452. That listing, "All the People in the Bible and Apocrypha," includes pronunciations, brief identifications, and biblical references. Persons covered in greater detail in the main part of the book are identified in bold print."--BOOK JACKET.
