Why did a fish swallow a coin that Jesus later used to pay the temple tax?
How could walking beside a donkey have made Joseph a laughingstock?

Melissa Endres1 Stars Out Of 5July 20, 2010Melissa EndresAlthough the book was nicely illustrated, I found little else about it to recommend. There are some interesting facts, but none of them are backed up by any sort of bibliography - which no reputable publishing company should allow. The majority of the Scripture verses referenced were either completely unrelated to the point he was making or taken entirely out of context. The author inserted many personal interpretations and assumptions that cannot be supported by any type of literal, Biblical interpretation. I felt that the author's text was unscholarly and un-researched and is a poor representation of Biblical study. I cannot recommend this book to anyone, because the few interesting bits of common knowledge are overshadowed by the many erroneous and illogical statements that permeate the book.
Reverend Ambridge5 Stars Out Of 5April 2, 2010Reverend AmbridgeThis has been one of my favorite reference books for a long time. I'm glad to have the updated version. There are so many great cultural references that enhance Bible understanding. I recommend this book for every serious student of the Bible!
