    It was was I expected, and more. It is very interesting. I liked how the author compared some the biblical time frame, with events that happened in history.

    This is not a scholarly work but a kind of overview of key figures.

    It reads fast but it won't give you enough information to know where the Bible came from.

    I was looking for a bit more. It's okay, I was looking for a more depth. A good basic overview.
