The story of redemption is studded with men and women who had a direct and personal relationship with God, so many studies of biblical characters tend to be of individuals. But no man is an island. Many of these individuals also had relationships with other individuals which were important and even crucial to their success or failure.
In 40 short chapters Donald MacKay explores pairs of characters in the Bible. Some have obvious connections like Martha and Mary or David and Jonathan, but other relationships may be less clear, such as Timothy and Titus or Ahab and Jehoshaphat, but there is something to be learned from all of them.
These helpful stories will encourage readers to reflect on the lives and choices on these biblical characters, and also on the impact they have on the people around them and vice versa.
