Lion's Honey : The Myth of Samson

Author(s): David Grossman

General Fiction

Out of the eater came something to eat. Out of the strong came something sweet. With this riddle Samson poses the even greater puzzle of why a strong and powerful young man should choose to impress, or confound, his peers with a brainteaser they can't possibly answer, rather than a demonstration of his unique strength. Grossman finds many contradictions in Samson's singular personality; with his twenty-first-century perspective on this ancient tale, he shows us how Samson and his people, and all their strife over strength, power and love are as relevant now as they were when lions prowled the promised land.
