Item Description...
*Examines 750 common Biblical references and what they've come to represent in today's culture through art, literature, song and common phrases

*User friendly format--arranged alphabetically (from Aaron's rod to Zion)

What do we mean when we call a woman a Jezebel? What exactly was a scapegoat? Why was a fast-and-furious driver called Jehu? In a more literate (and Bible-conscious) age, most people knew the source of these and hundreds of other names, phrases, and images. Artists and writers could assume their audiences would understand references to biblical people and events. Today, some of those meanings are lost. This book fills that gap in knowledge.

The text discusses the most important names, places, images, events, and phrases of the Bible and looks at how each subject has been presented culturally in art, music, and literature. The reader not only gets a guided tour of biblical history, but also a renewed appreciation for words, phrases, art, and music that have been influenced by the Bible.
