With all the books available about the Bible, why another one? Well, it must be necessary, or it would not exist. Why you found this book and whether you read it or not can only be explained as the will of God. That is the conclusion offered in this review and commentary which combines bible history and content without interpretation that, although possibly not unique or even original, are easily read to help disclose the danger in proof texting scriptures. It presents the story of the Bible through scriptures and commentary not likely to be discussed in churches or Sunday School classes. What this book does is give you a concise, but fairly complete, summary of the evidence presented in the scriptures themselves, unvarnished, with no proof texting or cherry picking, without any specific church dogma that may be distorting or hiding the truth. The appendices include commandments by Jesus and instructions of Apostle Paul, scriptures very few churches feel comfortable discussing. However, you're not left dangling in space with no firm ground underneath your feet. Scripture says the truth will make you free. Since the Bible obviously contains contradictions and needs a better editor, there must be inferred some omnipotent power in the universe sustaining its interest and church expansion through two millennia. If you are skeptical or critical about church teachings, you may have found the solution to your concerns here in the discussion of Theofatalism, i.e., the GOD above gods, the prime force in the universe. With this belief, you can feel good inside no matter what happens outside if you work it. The conclusion may be quite a shock, but it definitely is a soft landing.
