REVIEW: Heroes and Outlaws of the Bible by Don Reid

First of all, I would like to extend a heartfelt “Thank you” to Don Reid and New Leaf Publishing Group for sending me a copy of "Heroes and Outlaws of the Bible" to review for them. I have always been grateful for this generosity, and I am trying to improve at being consistent in taking the time to thank these wonderfully giving individuals in a public forum. I really appreciate your time, effort and expense in making a reviewer copy available to me.

Don Reid’s “Heroes and Outlaws of the Bible” profiles eight Bible characters with comprehensive and Biblically sound synopses of their lives and their relationships with God. In fact, they could be considered eight mini studies. Each biography references the Biblical address where the subject’s story appears in scripture. Reid, the former lead singer for The Statler Brothers, conveys a depth of Biblical knowledge that comes only from the discernment of the Holy Spirit and good country living.

The foreword is written by Jimmy Dean. Yes, THAT Jimmy Dean. He is a longtime friend of Don Reid and offers a glimpse of insight into the author. This wonderful non-fiction book also contains some drawings that put the heart of the biographies into new perspective. This is a terrific resource.
