Personal Development, Character Study and Biography

Whether delving into the and/or researching the of from non-secular sources and records, for my own personal development, a character study always proves to be invaluable.

For example, my explorations have led me here.

In accordance with my faith or religious beliefs, the prophets – chosen servants who revealed God's will and His warning - were regarded as “holy” men.

* Ever wonder who the prophets thought were holy ?

In the Jewish scriptures, the , the prophet esteemed , and as three of the holiest men who ever lived.

In the , Christian scriptures, the words of are recorded and He said: “of all men born of women there is none greater than John the Baptist”.

WOW! My further examinations will likely lead into a closer more in-depth review of the lives of Noah, Job, Daniel and John the Baptist. Each one should make for an interesting and insightful character study.

My favorite book genre is the . Particularly enjoy the simplified versions found on library shelves in the Juvenile section. They are usually quick reads and often very inspiring, encouraging and motivating. Audio biographies are great too! Listen while you work.

Music played low in volume can make your internet writing go a bit better.

Yeah. Agree. Not just Internet writing. Any writing! But um … I have a lot of music in my head. :)

That is a characteristic of being musical minded. Sometimes musicians think of songs in their head and have to hurry up and run for the guitar and/or the piano so they can hear it for real and go with the flow and even try to compose the music on paper.

As you delve into these biographies, you will see that although God used these men in extraordinary ways, they were as human as we are. Their common denominator is their faith under adverse circumstances and their perseverance in faith even when it seems things were going very badly for them indeed. Most of them had questions for God and had doubts about what they had believed, but they took those doubts directly to God for his input and they got it. One book I used to love is Pages from God's Casebook by John Hercus. I believe it's out of print now. He also wrote David, which may be available. He really brings Bible characters to life. I hope I still have my copies.

Thank you very much for your insightful remarks. Those book suggestions sound interesting. I do hope you kept your copies. There are so many books that I wish I had kept my copies. :)

I love biographies of all sorts--we are all similar in so many ways, but the ways we use our talents--so different really

Really everyone is very similar. But a person's individuality and uniqueness is to be embraced, explored and expressed. And you can quote me on that. :)
