Richard Holloway can be relied on to be stimulating, indeed often controversial, as well as informative. This book can be recommended to anyone, whether a believer or not (as is well known, Holloway has had a foot in both camps). It shows how the Bible is as relevant today as it ever was, not by reading it literally, of course, or necessarily with the committed eyes of faith, but by seeing it as a document, or rather collection of documents, that offers unrivalled insights into what it means to be human (which is of course inseparable from developing concepts of God through historical time).

I found this book extremely hard to read and at times complicated the bible. The author is well known and respected, But I feel that was the biggest let down. I did learn some things about the bible and feel that if you are seeking general knowledge about the subject that will give you quotations then this is your book

Eye Opening 31 Oct. 2007
By F. Fulton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a book for people who wish to take a critical look at the Bible-especially for those who are believers. The import of an ancient book in our society, its truth in spite of the multiple difficulties of reading the work as fundamental fact becomes clear.
Be ready to throw away your simplistic ideas about what the Bible means and what it says. The end result is a powerful read.
