Peculiar Treasures

(1990)
A non fiction book by

 
 
In this second book of his popular lexical trilogy, Frederick Buechner profiles more than 125 of the Bible's most holy and profane people -- and one whale. In his lively and witty prose, Buechner brings to life such moments from scripture as:



Adam's pangs of regret for a remembered Eden



Delilah's last glimpse of Samson as they dragged him away



Lazarus's first impressions upon rising from the dead



To read Peculiar Treasures is to realize that many of these legendary figures are not who we thought they were. But they are -- in their human dreams,ambitions, and imperfections -- very much like us.
