Publisher's 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®, 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® 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.

    This book is essentially for beginners who, while still committed Christians, have made a break with biblical literalism, and are looking for new exploratory ground for their freshly recovered critical faculties. Intermediate and advanced students of the Bible will find little of value in it. Literalists (and some orthodox believers) probably will get mad, suffer higher blood pressure, and stop reading. The author's humor, which suffuses the book, can be somewhat heavy-handed (yes, I think I already know that Moses probably did not look like Charlton Heston; not too sure about Pharaoh and Yul Brynner, however). The purpose seems to be to disabuse the reader of simplistic and Hollywood-influenced perceptions, just in case the reader really is that much of a beginner. The most useful parts of the book deal with the Old Testament histories (Judges, Samuel, Kings, Chronicles, and, to some extent, Ezra and Nehemiah). The reader, on the other hand, may skip the author's "best of" selections from Psalms and Proverbs, without any real loss of substantive content. The material on the gospels is pretty unimpressive. Slightly more interesting are the author's remarks on the Pauline epistles. For the end materials, the bibliography is probably the most useful component. Rather than simply listing his sources, the author appends brief comments which may help the beginner to better define critical interests, and to locate helpful references. The glossary is of interest merely to suggest that modern and comprehensive theological dictionaries exist, which incorporate extensive archaeological and philological materials. So, to the beginning critical thinker: read once, then move on. For others, don't expect much.
