Publisher's Description

God's Dangerous Book is the dramatic story of the history of the Bible. More, its a book about how the Bible has always been a dangerous, provocative text. The Bible is more than just a piece of literature. It's a challenge, an inspiration, a wild, unsettling mandate for revolutionary behaviour. And that is exactly how people have used it over the years - for good and ill.
Uniquely presented, God's Dangerous Book draws together story and scholarship with lively accounts of the people, powers and incidents involved in bringing the Bible, in the language of the people, into English. Informative, thought-provoking and very readable, this is a book that will help you discover the story behind the world's bestseller. It tells how the Bible was created, how it became a best-selling book and the effects it had on those who encountered it. Through a discussion of democracy and literacy, learning and communication this book shows how the Bible is, above all, about freedom and why Gandhi described God's book as 'containing enough dynamite to blow all civilisation to pieces.'
