Many of us have never read or studied the Bible, yet people have been quoting from its pages for centuries, often not knowing the origin or significance of these timeless expressions. Here Ferdie Addis sheds light 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 riveting tales of epic battles and astonishing miracles, Addis traces the meanings behind such familiar phrases as "a drop in the bucket," "the powers that be," "all things must pass," "as old as the hills," and "bite the dust."
