You're Not Having My Lentils!: In Poetic Verse


This is Trevor Chandler's second book in poetic form. The unusual title comes from an incident in the Old Testament when David was still a fugitive from King Saul. His followers had to find or produce their own food. When a lentil crop was ready for harvest, one of David's men, Shammah, was standing in the lentil field when a troop of Philistines attacked. The men with Shammah fled, but the Bible says, "But Shammah took his stand in the middle of the field. He defended it and struck the Philistines down, and the Lord brought about a great victory." The theme of the book is "standing in times of testing" and the lentil field is used as a symbol of the test, and whether those involved held the lentil field or lost it. Fifty individuals from the Old Testament have been chosen, and fifty people or churches from the New Testament. The poems then set out the challenges involved if the "lentil fields" were to be held. The author has summed up the heart of each subject in a most interesting, different and inspiring manner. These poems present a new and refreshing way to read or revise some of the fascinating and challenging historical life stories, and the exhortations to churches, that are found in the Bible.
