Overview
Whether or not you have ever read or studied the Bible, Amen to That references the best-selling book in the world from which people have been quoting for centuries and sheds light on the origins of everyday expressions and phrases we use today.
Many of us have never read or studied the Bible, yet people have been quoting from its pages for centuries, not knowing the origin or significance of these timeless expressions. Let there be light Amen to That will delightfully shed clarity on how a collection of ancient stories, written in three languages over the course of a thousand years, has had such an impact on the way we speak today. Through intriguing stories and riveting tales of epic battles and acts of betrayal to miracles and beyond, you ll quickly discover the meanings behind such familiar phrases as:
  • A drop in the bucket
  • All things must pass
  • As old as the hills
  • Bite the dust
  • Eat, drink, and be merry
  • The powers that be
  • Woe is me

Amen to That is a wonderful look at the gripping storytelling and cultural wealth to be found in the world's best-selling book, as well as a fascinating insight into our language."
