The Bard and the Bible pairs 365 short passages from the King James Version of the Bible with lines from Shakespeares plays and sonnets. The poetry of the Bard of Stratford-on-Avon and the power of Gods Word will enrich the readers understanding and appreciation of both, and provide new ways to encounter and respond to God through His Word. A year of daily readings in both Shakespeare and the King James Version yields intellectual stimulation and spiritual inspiration for readers, enlarging their minds as it changes their lives.
