Product Description

Stephen Miller, bestselling author of Complete Guide to the Bible and Who's Who and Where's Where in the Bible, compares reading the Bible to driving a country road. "We're cruising along reading a fine little story when suddenly we hit a jaw dropper of a narrative pothole. Right out loud we might say, 'What on earth is this doing in God's holy Word?'"

You can't read far in the Bible without being jolted by an account of polygamy, slavery, or gender inequality. Other stories read almost like comedies--like the one about a dead man springing to life when his corpse touches a prophet's bones.

How do you face these things honestly? With a touch of dry humor, Miller identifies bumps in the road, briefly offers popular interpretations, and leaves you with food for thought. This is a fast-paced, fun, and reliable guide for your tour through the Bible.

    I just love Stephen Miller's writing. I really thought Strange and Mysterious Stuff from the Bible to be pretty good. I enjoyed how he explained each section. Sometimes he was humorous and sometimes he was serious. He definitely knows the Bible. I think this book is good to get people to pick up their Bible and read more what is in it.

    5 stars.

    Steve Miller's latest book may be his most addictive yet. Full of hundreds of fascinating two and three paragraph facts, biographies and stories from the Bible (I hesitate to call it trivia), it's the kind of book you pick up for a short read but find yourself unable to put down. My family is already fighting over it! Like all of Steve's books, it's meticulously researched, yet great fun to read.
