Item Description...
Overview
Explores the truths and myths of the Bible through retellings of popular stories from the Old and New Testaments, and a review of the historical events happening at that time

Publishers Description

With wit, wisdom, and an extraordinary talent for turning dry, difficult reading into colorful and realistic accounts, the creator of the bestselling Don't Know Much About(R), series now brings the world of the Old and New testaments to life as no one else can in the bestseller Don't Know Much About(R) The Bible. Relying on new research and improved translations, Davis uncovers some amazing questions and contradictions about what the Bible really says. Jericho's walls may have tumbled down because the city lies on a fault line. Moses never parted the Red Sea. There was a Jesus, but he wasn't born on Christmas and he probably wasn't an only child.

Davis brings readers up-to-date on findings gleaned from the Dead Sea Scrolls and Gnostic Gospels that prompt serious scholars to ask such serious questions as: Who wrote the Bible? Did Jesus say everything we were taught he did? Did he say more? By examining the Bible historically, Davis entertains and amazes, provides a much better understanding of the subject, and offers much more fun learning about it.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting  Jan 26, 2007
First, the people who write negative reviews of this book, suggesting that the author is biased against the Bible, must realize two things: most people who believe that the Bible is the inerrant word of a supreme being, believe so based on the circular reasoning that it says so in the Bible; the vast majority of people in the world do not believe that the Bible is the word of God (and, thus, do not believe in the resurrection and such), and, in many cases, believe, instead, that THEIR holy books represent God's word. As obvious as these statements are, I'm always amazed that so many people simply are unaware of these facts, or choose to ignore them.

In that light, the author is, if anything, biased TOWARD the Bible being the word of God. He does not speak against the resurrection and other miracles, e.g., but seems to allow for the possibility that they may actually have occurred.

I had a great time reading this book. I knew the Bible very well many years ago, and reading it was a reminder of how beautiful and fascinating it is, warts and all. This book is about as near to unbiased as one can get.
 
Not a good book.  Jan 20, 2007
Check out an excellent book by Lee Strobel called "The Case for Christ" if you want to know more about the Bible.
 
Maybe Mr. Davis needs to do some more research  Jan 10, 2007
My guess is that it must have been extremely difficult for Mr. Davis to remain unbiased when writing this book. While he is able to theorize based on other teaching about specific events that occurred in the Old Testament, he fails to use the same kind of reasoning when it applies to the New Testament. It seems that there is no mention about the actual translation of the biblical text referring to fulfilling the Messianic Prophecies nor does he examine the original Hebrew text concerning the writings in Isaiah or Jeremiah. Nor does he give any clear explanation about the miracles Jesus performed or theorize about his resurrection. I think if you cannot separate yourself from your core beliefs, your definition of "the truth" remains to be questioned.
 
Bible Book  Jan 3, 2007
Okay book. Not necessarily inspiring or helping to understand the doctrines of the bible and application to our lives.

Everything The World Believes about the Bible...  Dec 15, 2006
I bought this book tbinking that it would be an easy to read companion to the Bible... in reality, it was basically a refutation to the Word. Mr. Davis spent a great deal of time and energy to offer a naturalistic opposing argument to The Word of God. He defends Darwin, essentially calls most of the Old Testament "myth," and states clearly that the New Testament was written by "unknown jewish-Christians" with second hand information. This is the converse "Case for Faith," world view that spends every page flirting with ridicule of Christ followers.

If you are a Chrsitian, skip this one. If you are a seeker, look for Lee Strobel's "Case for Christ" or "Case for a Creator." Both discuss many of the same issues without the jaded world view.
