Review

Praise for A History of the Bible

"John Barton has written a wise and eminently sane book about a book which has inspired both insanity and wisdom. It is a landmark in the field, and it will do great good." -- Diarmaid MacCulloch

"John Barton's new book gives a superb overview... condensing masses of research into an easily accessible volume for the non-specialist ... even for those deeply familiar with the Bible there is much here to be learnt." -- Bart D Ehrman, author of The Triumph of Christianity: How a Forbidden Religion Swept the World

"With emotional and psychological insight, Barton unlocks this sleeping giant of our culture for the untrained but curious general reader... He has produced a masterpiece." -- Peter Stanford, Sunday Times

"This strikingly accessible yet wonderfully erudite volume will be welcomed by many ... a tour de force." -- BBC History Magazine

"Barton's rigorous, accessible history will appeal to academics and general readers alike." -- Publishers Weekly, starred review
