Some of the most powerful stories in history are found in the Bible. The very names of their characters - including David, Daniel, Esther, Samson, Joshua and Jonah - evoke heroic personal action; individuals making righteous stands against untruths and oppression.
These ancient stories speak to us of passions, loves and battles in ways that resonate with us today. How did the evil dictator in 'The Handwriting on the Wall' come undone? How did one man - Joshua - destroy a seemingly indestructible empire? What was the true gift to us of 'the good Samaritan'? What really brought down the Tower of Babel? What do we make of Susanna (who story was excluded from the Bible) and her quiet yet persistent stance against the Elders?
The stories in The Honey and the Fires have been retold for our modern, secular times, brilliantly capturing both the essence of the time-honoured tales and their meaning for us today. These bold, often startling and lyrical stories bring us closer to the heroes and heroines of the past, but make sense of the messages that their stories still deliver for all of us.
The Honey and the Fires is that rare book: both timeless and of our time.
