    Jim George has taken 50 people of the Bible and made simple biographies of each. There are the characters that you would expect, such as Noah, Isaac, and Abraham. Then there are some more obscure individuals, such as Rahab and Philemon. With The Bare Bones Bible Bios, people no longer have an excuse to be biblically ignorant. This is simple reading. Each bibliography is about 5 pages long. I cannot stress how great I think this book is. For those of us who have wanted to be bible scholars, but never quite have the time to delve in, this is a great start. The Bare Bones Bible Bios by Jim George is an excellent tool for Christians and non-Christians alike. Have you ever heard the name of a Biblical character and tried to remember who that person was? It happens to most of us at one time or another. The Bare Bones Bible Bios is a reference tool that will help nudge your memory. This is not an in depth study of the characters, it presents only the most basic of facts. Each chapter discusses a different character. There is a supporting scripture, notable quality, notable accomplishment, and location of the major text. George offers some background information and a personality sketch. My favorite part of each chapter is the Life Lessons. The characters discussed are well-known I did not find any obscure names that I did not recognize. The information is presented in a simple, easy-to-understand form. This is an excellent book I hope in the future Mr. George might consider writing one on the less known characters. Well done Mr. George. Reviewed by Debra Gaynor for ReviewYourBook.com
