Good Samaritan Bites The Dust

Ever claimed that there is 'no rest for the wicked', judged something as 'sour grapes', or rallied friends by shouting 'eat, drink and be merry'? Knowingly or not, you have been quoting from the Bible. The English language features countless biblically-derived phrases that are used by people on a day-to-day basis, yet the user often does not know the origin or meaning behind them. However, there is a wealth of fascinating stories and history to be learned. The Good Samaritan Bites the Dust offers a light-hearted and fascinating look at the stories behind the expressions - explaining where in the Bible these familiar phrases appear and describing the colourful biblical backdrop to their origination, from epic battles to acts of betrayal, miracles and beyond. For those familiar, and not so familiar with the Bible, this is a wonderful look at the gripping storytelling and cultural wealth to be found in the world's bestselling book, as well as an intriguing insight into our language.
