Samson and Barnabas (People In The Bible series)

Both these short books are in the series People in the Bible. They are character studies of two very human people, and each is written appropriately by a serving pastor with a pastor’s heart. Virtually every text of Scripture which alludes to Samson and Barnabas is included, providing two exciting biographies. Two particular aspects…
