"Peter Enns has written a great book about The Book. If you've ever struggled with the violent or contradictory or just plain strange passages in the Bible, this book is for you . . . And he's funny."--Rob Bell, author of Love Wins
"Cross a stand-up comic, a robust theological mind, a college professor, and a decent normal guy, and what do you get? Peter Enns. And what does he write? A super-enjoyable, highly informative, disarmingly honest, and downright liberating book. The message of this book needs to get out. Fast."--Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christianity
"The question of how to read, inwardly digest, and eventually 'live' the Bible is probably the most divisive one among Christians today. This is a book that every Christian will be the better and richer for having read."--Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence
"Peter Enns has emerged as one of the stars of biblical interpretation for thinking Christians. With writing that is winsome, readable, and non-intimidating, he cuts a path between wooden literalism and faithless liberalism, giving us a way to read the Bible that is both faithful and intellectually credible."--Tony Jones, theologian-in-residence at Solomon's Porch and the author of Did God Kill Jesus?
