A Sign of the Times: Unlocking Scripture with Familiar Phrases by Lynn Machin

A Study Guide for groups or individuals.

The King James Bible is a treasure-trove of idioms, clichés and phrases that have entered everyone’s vocabulary—and yet few are aware of the Bible as their source.

This book, suitable for both individual and group use, contains fifteen short studies designed to provoke discussion and contemplation. Each study discusses the context and cultural climate in which the phrases were used, and reflects on their relevance in the modern world.

Engaging and thought provoking, this study guide will immerse the reader in scripture and quickly have you delving deeper into the Bible for further information as you increasingly gain more insight into the meanings and significance of the phrases.
