9780060611415: Peculiar Treasures

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.

Witty yet solidly instructive characterizations of more than one hundred Biblical figures underscores the lessons each holds for Christians today.
