did not like it
bookshelves: partly-read
Read in September, 2009

First, I will admit that I did not read the entire book. But, still, when the author is saying that his opinion is fact, that can't be a good start. If it would have been more historical, I could have enjoyed it better. But I don't need to read about this guy's religious views to remind me that I can be an instrument in God's hands.

There wasn't even a chapter on Ruth! Furthermore, in the first chapter on Eve, he basically pounds it into the reader's head that Eve was a big sinner and she messed up life for the rest of us. That's definitely not something I agree with.

There is a chapter on Ruth.

David Sassaman Maybe it's time to read the Bible as the word of God instead of a "history" book. If you don't want religious views, why read religious books, especially those written by extremely conservative Christian authors?

Kelsey Yeah... there was definitely a chapter on Ruth.

Joyce Oliver stahle There is a chapter on Ruth. You shouldn't be so quick to write off the book.
