In this second book of his popular lexical trilogy, Buechner profiles more than 125 of the Bible’s most holy and profane people—and one whale, bringing pivotal moments from scripture to life with his trademark lively and witty prose.
“A fresh perception of the biblical stories with razor-edged humor in such a manner as to bring them alive to modern readers.”–Theology Today
“The entries from Peculiar Treasures that got the most play…were no doubt those treating Abraham, Sarah, and Isaac. Musicians like Michael Card and Daniel Amos wrote songs based on the humor and contemporary themes Buechner finds.”–W. Dale Brown, The Book of Buechner
