a Biblical perspective that can bring Shakespeare closer to our personal hopes and fears
Marvin, NC (PRWEB) January 19, 2017
Jock N. Chandler’s new book, A Christian’s Companion to Shakespeare’s Tragedies ($13.99, paperback, 9781498481380; $6.99, eBook, 9781498481397) shares with readers that William Shakespeare shares Biblical insights through his characters words and actions. The reader should get a different perspective of the characters where they contend with their spiritual lives and what happens to them after death. Many books deal with the characters, the language of Shakespeare, and the character motivations. This book gleans the subtext of the spiritual conflicts within the characters.
Chandler says, “A Christian’s Companion to Shakespeare’s Tragedies offers a unique perspective when reading Shakespeare, a Biblical perspective that can bring Shakespeare closer to our personal hopes and fears and places the reader in a sympathetic role with the characters.”
Seems unusual to find biblical references within the pages of poet William Shakespeare’s famous tragedies, but that is exactly what author Jock Chandler found when he viewed the plays through the lens of a Christian mindset. Chandler does not consider himself to be a Shakespearean expert, but he is able to discern the spiritual issues and references expressed through Shakespeare’s characters.
