Read in October, 2011

A historian’s overview of the Bible written in wry and conversational prose. Good for readers who want to increase their cultural literacy. Not so good for literalists who may be dismayed to learn that the Red Sea whose waters Moses parted should have been translated as The Sea of Reeds, that Virgin could just as well have been translated as young woman, that Jesus is the Greek translation of the Hebrew name Joshua.
