Characters include Elizabeth, Timothy, Epaphras and Apollos. You will also enjoy reading other books in the Hidden Heroes series.

...there are twelve 'hidden heroes' from a variety of New Testament sources, ranging from Matthew & Mark to the lesser known Apollos and Epaphras. It would have been all too easy to have focussed exclusively upon various familiar characters, such as the centurion, who approached Jesus about his servant or Zacchaeus, who famously climbed the sycamore tree. As with the companion book on the Old Testament, each section opens with the relevant portion of Scripture. The concluding questions, under the heading of 'What do you think', encourage the reader to explore the Bible further, by way of various recommended texts. The content is both readable & informative; moreover, the approach varies. For instance, the story of the Samaritan woman whom Jesus met by the well is written in the first person singular, with the woman telling her tale. The same applies with the account of Mary & Martha at Bethany, where Mary recounts the incident. This contrasts well with the third-person approach in other chapters. In a couple of places there are concluding references to God having a plan for each of our lives. This has been heard before & has attracted some controversy. Although no supporting reference is made in Hidden Heroes to any particular text, its origin appears to be traceable to how the NIV translates Jeremiah 29:11. Otherwise the book again provides an imaginative introduction to the various portions of Scripture selected. British Church newspaper - 08/02/1013 - Peter Murcott
