Lion's Honey: The Myth of Samson

Lion's Honey: The Myth of Samson Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

?There are few other Bible stories with so much drama and action, narrative fireworks and raw emotion, as we find in the tale of Samson: the battle with the lion; the three hundred burning foxes; the women he bedded and the one woman that he loved; his betrayal by all the women in his life, from his mother to Delilah; and, in the end, his murderous suicide, when he brought the house down on himself and three thousand Philistines. Yet beyond the wild impulsiveness, the chaos, the din, we can make out a life story that is, at bottom, the tortured journey of a single, lonely and turbulent soul who never found, anywhere, a true home in the world, whose very body was a harsh place of exile. For me, this discovery, this recognition, is the point at which the myth - for all its grand images, its larger-than-life adventures - slips silently into the day-to-day existence of each of us, into our most private moments, our buried secrets? From David Grossman's Introduction to Lion's Honey A writer of passionate honesty, unafraid to ask terrible questions.? Nadine Gordimer

Synopsis:

Israel's most lauded contemporary writer retells the story of Samson, one of the most tempestuous, charismatic, and colorful characters in the Bible, and follows the tortured journey of a single, lonely, and turbulent soul. Unabridged. 1 MP3 CD.
