e-Sword Version: 9.x - 10.x
The Bible Biography books by William M. Taylor remain unexcelled in their field. The author speaks of these outstanding Bible personalities with warmth, zest, and penetrating insight. He writes of them as they were, without magnifying their excellencies, or apologizing for their faults. At the same time he repeatedly points out the lessons from their lives for life in our day and age.
The contents of these books consist mainly of the exposition, defense, and application of the Scriptural narrative. It was said that Taylor's sermons were so constructed that every sentence was a definite step toward his goal. This is true of the chapters in these books. The style is such as to inspire any preacher or speaker. The result is an outstanding homiletical and expository series of biographical sermons with warm and spiritual applications. These books furnish excellent material for series preaching.
William M. Taylor was born, educated and ordained in Scotland. He was one of the greatest preachers of his day. He is especially known for his expository writings on the parables and miracles.

Stone lecturer in Princeton Seminary. He was a preacher in the front rank, and enjoyed an international reputation. He died in 1902.
