This is a different kind of book about the Bible. The stories will ring a bell for many of you, but the details of the stories may not be known to you . . . yet Their "voices" should sound familiar to you as you read their stories. You will meet kings, shepherds, fishermen, soldiers, desperados, and visionaries; mothers, fathers, teenagers, and babies; good people, and a few bad ones. They may be strangers to you, but as you get to know them, you may recognize their voices as not being that much different from your own or from the voices of people that you know. Some of them may already be familiar to you, but many others are those quieter voices of the minor characters in the major stories of the Bible.
