The Bard and the Bible: A Shakespeare Devotional {Tuesdays Treasures}

Are you a lover of Shakespeare?  Do you love reading the King James bible?  If you answered YES to both of these questions then I'd like to share with you my new treasure for this week:  The Bard and the Bible : A Shakespeare Devotional by Bob Hostetler.

I was gifted a copy of The Bard and the Bible : A Shakespeare Devotional for Christmas last year and have been enjoying this devotional for the last month.  It's a beautifully bound book with a dust jacket.  The Bard and the Bible contains 365 daily devotions.

Each day's devotional is presented as follows:
  •  begins with a quote from Shakespeare 
  • followed by a scripture 
  • then the day's devotional thoughts.  
  • The bottom of each page contains a section of interest. It contains some interesting snippet.  This information is varied (historical, linguistic, reference etc.) I have found these particularly interesting.

  1. Looks less like a devotional and more like let's learn about the bard with Scripture tacked on, would that be accurate? Be an interesting side piece to doing a Shakespeare study
