Delilah told the lord of the Philistines and they shaved his head, Then his strength went from him, and he was good as dead, The Philistines took him and put out his eyes, But it was too late for Samson, so to the Lord he cried. After realizing he was living an unfulfilling existence, Erle K. ChanChue was guided to accept Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior by Chinese missionaries. In a debut collection, ChanChue shares inspirational poems inspired by biblical characters to spread the good news and help other believers better understand the power of God. Through examples such as Manoah, Samson, Moab, Ruth, Naomi, and many others, ChanChue lyrically illustrates the importance of calling on God for strength and grace during both challenging and joyful times in life. Bible Stories in Poetry is a volume of verse that relies on biblical characters to inspire Christians to renew their faith in Jesus Christ.

It is regarded as a truism that the King James Bible is one of the finest pieces of English prose. Yet few people are aware that the King James Bible was generally scorned or ignored as English writing for a century and a half after its publication. The reputation of this Bible is the central, most fascinating, element in a larger history, that of literary ideas of the Bible as they have come into and developed in English culture. This first volume of David Norton's magisterial two-volume work surveys and analyzes a comprehensive range of these ideas from Biblical times to the end of the seventeenth century, providing a unique view of the Bible and translation.
