Nick Page is laugh out loud funny. Not just "for a Christian", but for a human man. There's something almost Blackaderr-y about some of the bits of this book, in terms of sense of humour. It's such an interesting, knowledgable, humble, funny examination of the bible, that you'll find yourself looking forward to reading it. As in, curling up in bed of an evening, possibly early, just so you can read it. It's in bite-size chunks, with "Tricky Bits" explained honestly and without condescension; "Questions, Questions" where the author has brief - invariably hilarious - conversations with someone annoying who asks the questions *we* would ask; maps taking you through the chapters individually, and descriptions of the people that appear in the bible. Plus loads more. Really. Loads.
If you find Christianity a trife po-faced sometimes, this will, no pun intended, utterly renew your faith. If Jesus was to read a book discussing the bible, it'd be this one, cos He was funny, and He had an awesome, very dry sense of humour, as does Mr Nick.
Intelligent, genuinely funny, and full of God's Word. Great book.
