I Never Knew That Was in the Bible

  • By Martin Manser
Shows how hundreds of today’s colorful, everyday expressions come from the Old and New Testaments, such as “the blind leading the blind,” “by the skin of my teeth,” “a fly in the ointment,” and many more. Gives the fascinating and often humorous stories behind hundreds of other words and phrases from the great English Bible, the King James Version, especially those with different or rarely used meanings in today’s English. A great resource for Bible word studies: KJV expressions are illuminated by comparison with the way they are translated in eight major 20th-century Bible versions: CEV, NASB, NCV, NIV, NKJV, NLT, NRSV, and RSV. Illustrates the meaning of many terms with famous quotations from Shakespeare and other Elizabethan writers. Entertaining as well as informative: a one-of-a-kind illustrated reference work that all Bible readers, students of English literature, writers, and word lovers of all kinds will treasure. Fully illustrated.
