Summary

In Lion's Honey, award-winning writer David Grossman takes on one of the most vivid and controversial characters in the Bible. He revisits Samson's famous battle with the lion, his many women, and his betrayal by them all - including the only one he ever loved. Grossman gives us a provocative new take on the story and its climax - Samson's final act of death - when he brings down a temple on himself and 3,000 Philistines.

Interesting commentary

I came to this book expecting a fictional account of Samson's story but received a contextual account with various suggestions on further meaning. Although interesting it wasn't the book I was looking for. Ideal for someone looking to dig deeper into Samson psychologically.
