God’s Little People – Series by Brian H Edwards – DayOne Publications

Little people in Paul’s letters / Little women in the Bible / The apostles of Jesus

Available from DayOne Publications. Price: £5.00 each.

In these three books, Brian Edwards paints portraits for us of some important characters from throughout the Bible. The series title, God’s Little People, is not to imply that these are unimportant people, rather that only a little is recorded of them in the Bible. In spite of this, their lives are rich in teaching and the author draws this out, enhancing our appreciation of these characters through his expert knowledge and understanding of the times and culture in which they lived. Tiny details or events in their stories which we pass over stand out in sharp relief when understood in the cultural context in which they occurred. These are very readable books through which you will learn much and gain a closer acquaintance with some of God’s little people and the lessons we can learn from them.
