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
