Product description

Product Description

All of us use idioms, allusions, and sayings regularly but we seldom notice them because they are so ingrained in the English language. All of the terms in this book are at least four hundred years old while some go back even farther in time and all are still being used. We may not know their origins but they are an important part of our language, providing us a verbal shorthand to express ourselves more colorfully and more easily.

Since 1611, the King James Version of the Bible, which incorporates some expressions from earlier English translations, has been a major source for English idioms, allusions, and sayings. This book lists and describes over 1000 terms—such as “powers that be,” “turn the other cheek,” and “writing on the wall”—that demonstrate the Bible’s continuing influence on the language and cultures of English-speaking people around the world. Some of these terms will be recognized by many English speakers while some will be less familiar.

The reader will discover that becoming familiar with these terms will help him understand the English language better and also discover that the Bible remains a relevant book for contemporary culture. For more information, visit
