What is included with this book?


Idioms are words and phrases that express more than the actual words themselves. Found throughout the scriptures, these figurative expressions, such as "gird up your loins" and "salt of the earth" can be misleading if the reader has no experience with the message being conveyed. In these pages, George M. Peacock explains exactly what idioms are, how to identify them, and how learning their meaning can add to one's understanding of the scriptures and their messages. Along with the many other resources available today that aid in understanding the scriptures, Unlocking the Idioms will help bring insight and knowledge to anyone who wants to feast upon the words of the Lord.
