I have this scheduled to post with a review. I couldn't get very enthusiastic about this book. I don't believe that the Bible is full of myths.

Just so everyone knows, the publisher did not have the first chapter for me. They asked if I would post the button that led to the first chapter on their site.

Thanks! :-)

Posted. Shared my initial thoughts regarding teh authors approach to the Bible. I don't believe that the Bible is a mythical book, or that it is equal to the midrash, and other cultural books from the Jewish and Islamic religions. In any case, I haven't got very far yet, but wanted to share that with my readers.

I posted! I didn't take the idea that the Bible is a mythical book from my reading. I found it very interesting!
