Reviews - What do customers think about Archaeology and the Old Testament?

so, so  Jul 4, 2008
The comparisons of ancient heathen writings to the Bible are forced, giving the distinct impression that the author was trying to justify the book's title any which way he could.

What the book does show is that there is no comparison between Monotheism and paganism. One strives for nobility, the other gives free reign to people's beastly side. Heathen gods are servants who are highly valued by their masters. Given sufficient propitiation, they are expected to help with the worshiper's material needs: fertility, success in war, and prosperity. Some long-lasting pagan cultures discovered that justice, kindness, and humility are good for the individual and good for society, so they practice some forms of these virtues, but for no other reason than self-interest. It's a start, but it becomes clear by the book's end that paganism and Monotheism are choices and they tell us much about the character of the people who choose them.
