Holy Shakespeare! 101 Scriptures That Appear in Shakespeare’s Plays, Poems, and Sonnets by Maisie Sparks is a nice collection of quotes and verses, showing the influence that the Bible had on William Shakespeare’s writing. The book contains 101 Scripture verses paired with Shakespeare quotes, covering topics such as deception, hypocrisy, temperance, and the gift of life. It is a cute book, measuring 5 x 6.8 inches in size.

Though some pages have are decorated with an image of Shakespeare or an image of the hands from Michaelangelo’s “The Creation of Adam” painting, the book is largely minimalistic in nature, and it is formatted in a pleasant and aesthetically appealing manner. Holy Shakespeare! is a great book to set on a table or shelf, and perhaps read a page or two from it every day. If you enjoy studying the Bible and reading Shakespeare, it is very interesting to see the Bible’s influence on Shakespeare’s writing through this book.
