Book Description

Amazon.com Review Say you're curious about the Bible's stance on alcohol. All you need to do open to page 41 of Stephen J. Lang's Biblical Quotations for All Occasions, where you'll find Proverbs 23:20-21, which says, 'Be not among wine guzzlers, nor among gluttonous eaters of food. For the drunkard and the glutton shall come to poverty, and laziness shall clothe a man with rags.' Or Proverbs 31:6-7: 'Give strong drink to him that is ready to perish, and wine to those that are of heavy hearts. Let him drink, and forget his poverty, and remember his misery no more,' arming you with the appropriate Gospel for whichever side of the argument you wish to espouse. The book includes quotations for various occasions--'Anniversaries' to 'Weddings'--and quotations by subject, organized alphabetically from 'Abuse' and 'Adultery' to 'Work,' 'Worldly Pleasures,' and 'Worry.' Each category mentions others that are related, so 'Conflict' refers you to 'Fellowship with Other Believers,' 'Hate,' and 'Peace.' I Peter 5:8 advises: 'Be self-controlled, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour,' but self-control isn't so easy with Lang's Biblical Quotations nearby. --Stephanie Gold Read more Review The Bible's Most Memorable Sayings at Your Fingertips Read more See all Editorial Reviews
