The Bible NowBook - 2011
A refreshingly honest look at what the ancient Bible teaches us about contemporary controversies, as explained by biblical scholars who can write for lay readers. In fascinating passages that shed new light on some of today's most passionate disputes, the authors reveal how the Bible is frequently misunderstood, misquoted, mistranslated, and misused. Without taking and arguing a particular side, this is a lucid discussion, informed by strong scholarship, of the biblical texts at issues for the issues.
