Explore the Wonders of the Bible

Ever find yourself wondering...
What happened to the ark of the covenant?
Who was the mysterious Queen of Sheba?
What was the secret to Samson's astonishing power?
What caused thousands of pigs to run off a cliff?

Mysteries & Intrigues of the Bible answers these and other questions based on strange but true stories from the bestselling book of all time -- the Bible. It explores the lives of eccentric people and prophets, as well as those of notorious kings and queens. It looks behind the scenes at amazing events -- from the sudden fall of Jericho to Belshazzar's mysterious death to Jesus's fascinating miracles. It considers curious connections among the Bible's records of such events as "miraculous births" and "fishy stories." It also answers some of the most frequently asked questions about the Bible, such as, "Doesn't the idea of miracles conflict with the natural laws that govern this world?" and, "Do people have guardian angels?"

Intriguing stories, fascinating charts, astounding facts, and interesting answers to commonly asked questions -- all with biblical references -- make Mysteries & Intrigues of the Bible an entertaining and informative book for the entire family!

Mysteries & Intrigues of the Bible is a collection of pieces trying to explain the inexplicable in the Bible. It is compiled by a production staff of several contributing writers. The entire book tries to help readers understand why things in the Bible are the way they are. To that end it interweaves aspects of biblical and secular philosophy, history, sociology, and science. Everything from the influence of geography to the changing aspects of politics pops up in various essays, articles, and chapters.

This book claims to have the answers to some of the most asked questions about the Bible. However, when reading Mysteries & Intrigues of the Bible, it is clear that there are few point blank answers given, just suggestions that lead to more questions. The contributing writers, themselves, are student inquirers rather than renown authorities on aspects of theology. What has challenged their thinking about various passages of scripture is now being passed on for the readers to read, examine, think about, research further, and then draw personal conclusions about.

Although this text does not provide references and documented material designed to provide definitive responses to baffling aspects of the Bible, it might serve well as a stimulating discussion starter for Bible study groups that enjoy rigorous debate about key biblical issues. It may also provide an outline of personal research projects for those who are intrigued by baffling translation problems, theological contradictions or cross current views between the Old and New Testaments. -- James Holstein, ChristianBookPreviews.com
