  • Yes... and there was some kind of conversation about it. I wonder where it was... Where's that dang Wordnik historian?? Oh, here:

    a retail catastrophe of biblical proportions.

    There's the full quote and the citation for it.

    Biblical proportions, I think, as a phrase, usually refers to things like the plagues, the flood, etc. Not the size of the book itself. But then... you knew that already. Whoops; I'm slow.

  • Hey, I just came across this phrase yesterday! It's from The Perfect Storm, by Sebastian Junger, isn't it?

    I remember reading the phrase and then thinking "What, exactly, are 'Biblical proportions'? Most Bibles are about seven or eight inches long, aren't they?"
