I tried to stick with this... I really did. In fact, I made it to about page 200 before I gave up.

I think there are definitely people this book will appeal to, but I guess I'm not one of them. The contemporary retellings of biblical stories seemed to be reaching a lot to make the connection between the two worlds. In addition, while the author says she used many different commentaries and did lots of research, it's pretty obvious she picked and chose which to use by picking sources that agreed with her preconceived ideas.

If you're the typical evangelical Christian woman, this book will probably appeal to you. If you're a little... left of center, shall we say, it's probably not for you.

Callie Rose Tyler I don't consider myself left of center, and I absolutely could not stand this book.
