Reviews - What do customers think about These Things Are Written: An Introduction to the Religious Ideas of the Bible?
Another excellent work by Efird Dec 28, 2007
Provides an in depth and scholarly (yet highly readable), explanation of some of the more mysterious apocalyptic writings. James ("Mickey") Efird is something of a "state treasure" here in North Carolina: He has long worked as both a scholar/professor at Duke Divinity School, and as a teacher/special lecturer in numerous individual congregations. Not all may agree with his school of thought, but for me, it advanced my appreciation of the Bible.
