9780060611415: Peculiar Treasures: A Biblical Who's Who

In this second book of his popular lexical trilogy, Frederick Buechner profiles more than 125 of the Bible's most holy and profane people -- and one whale. In his lively and witty prose, Buechner brings to life such moments from scripture as: * Adam's pangs of regret for a remembered Eden * Delilah's last glimpse of Samson as they dragged him away * Lazarus's first impressions upon rising from the dead To read Peculiar Treasures is to realize that many of these legendary figures are not who we thought they were. But they are -- in their human dreams,ambitions, and imperfections -- very much like us.
