Outstanding!

I read this book in preparation for participation in the Read the Bible In a Year challenge. Timothy Carmody wrote a thorough, understandable and fascinating account of the Bible. It was an invaluable help to me as I tackled the challenge, which I successfully completed. Reading the Bible not only provided me with historical context and the evolution of the Bible as a living document, it answered many of my longstanding questions. I also used it as a research tool during my project.
