The Bard and the Bible
The Bard and the Bible (A Shakespeare Devotional) pairs 365 short passages from each of the two greatest works of English literature ever created, which were compiled in the same period and in the same city. It offers a year of daily readings based on verses from the King James Version of the Bible and lines from 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, provide new ways to encounter and respond to God, and yield both intellectual stimulation and spiritual inspiration.
