Publisher's Description

101 lines or passages from William Shakespeare's works paired with Scripture passages that appear in the bard's classics. To be published just in time for the Shakespeare 400th celebrations.

Shakespeare was heavily influenced by Holy Writ. Bible lines, characters and narratives are "verbal characters" in the his plays, poems and sonnets, sometimes subtly and sometimes blatantly. But they are there, revealing the deep scriptural well that was the culture from which Shakespeare drew and also reminding us of scenes and stories in the Bible.

Shakespeare knew the Bible--as did everyone during that time. He used Scripture freely in what he wrote because through such biblical allusions, audiences would immediately grasp his meanings, charaterizations and unfolding situations. His works-meant to be performed-gave Scripture life. The Bible was not mere words in Shakespeare's work, but, like all of Scripture, were used for reproof, instruction, conviction and training.

Listening to Shakespeare with an ear that's open to whispers from God's Word can kindle both passion for his great literary works and the Greatest Book of all, Holy Scripture.

    What a wondrous, quaint, wistful and wise. I never would have put two and two together. Who would have thought that William Shakespeare was using the Scripture to write his sonnets, Plays and Poems? I love his writings and I never thought about it when I read his writings, when you read "With that dread King that took our state upon Him to free us from his Father's wrathful curse. King Henry VI Part II Act III, Scene 2 " is from "For HE hath made HIM to be sin for us, which knew no sin, that we should be made the righteousness of GOD in HIM." II Corinthians 5:21" Can you believe it? Isn't that amazing? That just makes me want to read so much more - this book is wonderful and I loved reading all of it - you will think it is so worth it just like I did. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.
