If Christians were to vote for their favourite Bible character, Barnabas would surely be in the top ten. Most of us feel drawn to this warm-hearted disciple, who so wonderfully lives up to his name, 'Son of Encouragement'. In these character studies based on passages in Acts, Robert Dale helps us to appreciate and encourages us to imitate this wonderful man, who himself is a reflection of a still greater Man, our Lord Jesus Christ, the greatest Encourager of all.
Robert Dale is minister of a church in, Lincoln, England, and a member of the council of Day One Christian Ministries. He is married and has two children. His background is in the financial sector. His hobbies include playing chess with his daughter.
