What did Israel sow in order to "reap the whirlwind"? Where did the "prodigal son" go to spend his inheritance? What is a "plowshare" and how can you beat a sword into one? Learn about these and other well-known words, phrases, and stories of the Old and New Testaments that have entered our everyday language. Includes black-and-white line drawings by Tom Lulevitch, a helpful index to key words and phrases, and a section on expressions that are mistakenly attributed to the Bible.

About the Author:
