Peculiar Treasures is the second book of Frederick Buechner's lexical trilogy. He profiles more than 125 of the Bible's most holy and profane people-and one whale. In his lively and witty prose, Buechner brings to life such moments from scripture as: Adam's pangs of regret for a remembered Eden, Delilah's last glimpse of Samson as they dragged him away, and Lazarus's first impressions upon rising from the dead. To read Peculiar Treasures is to realize that many of these legendary figures are not who we thought they were. But they are-in their human dreams, ambitions, and imperfections-very much like us.

Peculiar Treasures is called lively and witty in its decription. It sounds refreshing and whimsical. This book is also inaccurate and irreverent in its descriptions of Bible events and characters. I would not recommend it to anyone.
