In Bit Part Players of the Bible, his sixth title, Ray Markham looks at some of the lesser-known "bit part players" of the Old Testament; people who play only a small part on the biblical stage and are therefore often overlooked or largely ignored. In reading about these thirty or so characters, who include Lot, Caleb, Deborah, Boaz and Eli, we learn much that is of relevance and help to us in our own lives today.
The author aims to portray the characters in a way that will encourage and challenge us to fully play our own parts on the stage on which God has placed us, being mindful of the fact that we never know whose life we may be influencing. This is a very readable and insightful portrayal, the general context in which each "player" appears being unpacked, as well as their own individual story.
