Holy Enigma!: Bible Verses You'll Never Hear in Sunday School
University Press of America, 2004 - 199 páginas
The Holy Bible is an idol to some, a dust-magnet to others, and an enigma to many. Is it word for word "God breathed," as claimed by the apostle Paul? Holy Enigma! examines the Bible through the discerning eyes of a lifelong believer, one who loves the "Good Book" enough to probe its eccentricities without condemning its virtues. Believe it or not, the "Greatest Story Ever Told" has a dark side. That's right, verse after verse, the Bible is chock-full of fascinating, sometimes shocking and almost never discussed lexis, you'll never hear in Sunday school. A distinctive Bible study, Holy Enigma! takes a fresh look at the ancient stories of the Near East. It introduces candor, humor, and commonsense into a careful assessment of "God's word." In a heartfelt desire to spawn new interest in the Bible, the author opens a Pandora's Box by suggesting that belief in every biblical word insults the majesty of the Creator. Exploring the most bizarre passages, this work stands firm against evangelicals who flaunt the "dogma of inerrancy." Holy Enigma! is sure to astonish and entertain while inspiring deep reflection for believers and nonbelievers alike.
