Shakespeare and the Bible have both garnered lavish praise and numerous awards over the years (“greatest writer in the English language,” “best-selling book of all time,” etc.). But last week added one more accolade.
At last week’s record-setting Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference in Asheville, North Carolina, The Bard and the Bible: A Shakespeare Devotional, received multiple honors, including “Book of the Year” (pictured above, left to right: agent Steve Laube, author Bob Hostetler, and editor Pamela Clements of Worthy Inspired).
The book pairs 365 short passages from each of the two greatest works of English literature ever created–the King James Version of the Bible and Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets. The poetry of the Bard and the power of God’s Word will enrich your understanding and appreciation of both, and provide new ways to encounter and respond to God through a year of daily readings that yield intellectual stimulation and spiritual inspiration as they engage your mind and change your life. It is available in quality bookstores everywhere or from Barnes and Noble, Amazon, or CBD.
