Incredible Mysteries of the Bible A Visual Exploration
This book was the most frustrating of the Stephen Miller books that I have read. This book confirmed 100% for me that you have a very progressive/leftist view of the Bible. God's miracles are miracles! He doesn't need science to explain them away as natural disasters. You assume that Noah's Ark and Jonah are allegory's and you explain away the plagues of Egypt as scientific occurrences rather than God simply performing miracles.I gave your books a chance because I saw them in the book store. I am sorry, but I feel that you are misleading people as to what the Bible really means.

Stephen M. Miller has a well-established reputation as author of some of the most useful Bible information books. A search under his name at this site will prove the point.Miller has a talent for organizing a large amount of information and communicating it in a clear and interesting fashion that inevitably pulls the reader into a conversation about the material. Incredible Mysteries of the Bible: A Visual Exploration illustrates this point. Included are 40 mysteries beginning with Where Was the Garden of Eden? and ending with Is Hell Real or a Symbol? Each mystery receives two large format pages of coverage explaining what others have said and bringing to bear findings of recent scholarship. The visual in the title refers to the marvelous color illustrations for each mystery. This is a handsome, well-written book, providing colorful introductions to many of the mysteries of the Bible.

Beautifully illustrated, masterfully written.Gorgeous art--paintings, photos, maps--lavishly illustrate this book, helping bring to life Miller's crisp answers to vexing questions about Bible mysteries. Mysteries about the Garden of Eden, the Flood, people living hundreds of years, Noah's Ark. Some mysteries actually have reasonable solutions--like the story about Joshua ordering the sun and moon to stop. Hint: hail killed most of the enemy. Even the story of God feeding Moses and the Jews with quail and manna have science behind it. So does the collapse of Jericho's walls. Some other mysteries have only theories, but Miller seems to present the best of the lot and offers them up without bias. So we get to decide what theories, if any, seem most reasonable. Here's a warning: Pick up this book and you'll have a tough time putting it down. Every turn of the page draws you in. But the reading goes quickly because the writing gets to the point pronto.
