Bible Characters, Vol. 6


Oliphant, Anderson & Ferrier 1905

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Alexander Whyte’s concluding volume of character sketches are drawn from the men and women in the parables found in the Gospels of Luke, Matthew, and Mark. Subtitling this volume Our Lord’s Characters, Whyte’s examination of these personalities offers a unique perspective of the parables of Jesus. Whyte also explores the angels contained in the letters to the seven churches of Asia from the book of Revelation.

Praise for the Print Edition

No one takes a stronger grip on us—mind and very soul—in his expounding of Bible characters than Dr. Whyte

The Presbyterian Review

We know of no writer who can make more real the personalities of these Bible characters, or can bring home more vividly or helpfully the lessons of their words and deeds.

Christian Guardian

Each subject is handled with originality, freshness, skill, and sanctified scholarship.

English Churchman

Terse, strong, epigrammatic in his style, he penetrates to the core of character, and expounds it, and all the lessons it teaches, in fine English.

The N.Y. Observer

About Alexander Whyte

Alexander Whyte (1836–1921) was educated at the University of Aberdeen and at New College, Edinburgh. Stemming from a life of poverty, Whyte was self-educated before a sympathetic minister taught him Latin and Greek so he could attend college. Vowing to never forget the poor, Whyte went on to become a popular preacher and prolific writer. On his coffin were inscribed David's words, “I shall be satisfied when I awake with thy likeness" (Psalm 17:15).
