BOOKSBased on the movie which is based on the Bible story, the book Samson by Eric Wilson is available in stores now.
"I was thrilled to tell Samson's story. We can all relate to what a mess we can make of things at times, and here is a narrative of one of the Bible's biggest mess-ups,” says New York Times best-selling author, Eric Wilson. “I didn't realize how much writing this book would challenge me personally, emotionally, and spiritually. It is a story as timely as anything in today's headlines."
In addition to writing numerous young adult novels, Wilson has also written movie editions of faith-based movies like October Baby, Facing the Giants and Fireproof. His latest is the adaptation of the upcoming Pure Flix movie simply titled Samson which comes to theaters on February 16, 2018.
Samson is based on the powerful, biblical epic of a champion chosen by God to deliver Israel. His supernatural strength and impulsive decisions pit him against the oppressive Philistine empire. After being betrayed by a wicked prince and a beautiful temptress, Samson is captured and blinded by his enemies. Samson calls upon his God once more for supernatural strength and turns imprisonment and blindness into final victory.
According to the publisher, “This new novel illuminates the scriptural account of Samson to help readers at once understand one of the most famous biblical stories of the Old Testament on a deeper level and inspire them to realize that life's failures need not define their future.”
