So well written - you are there! Thank you. I look forward to reading The Book of Jesus by the same author - Walter Wangerin Jr.
Chronology is key Mar 10, 2007
As a theologian, I always struggle with teaching people about the bible as a story. The Pentateuch alone skips several generations and changes the order of some events.
"The Book of God" is a great way to look at the great story as a novel. When things are not chronologically correct, it is because they're being told as a past story. This book gives a delightfully real retelling of the entire bible in one complete novel, and is highly recommended.
The Book Of Good Jan 5, 2007
For children up to early adolescence an excellent introduction to the Bible. It brings the Bible to life, in a clear an easy way to understand the essence of the word of God.
I am no Biblical Scholar... Dec 21, 2006
But I really enjoyed this book and the way it lays out events in the Bible like a novel. A good portion of the Bible is not in here, but with what is in the book, it is very long, so I can understand why some things had to be left out. This is not a book to replace the Bible, but one to enhance some of the story's in the Bible.
The Book of God Nov 10, 2006
This book was one of the best Christian fictions I have read. Although it is written as fiction, it is essentially Biblically based. What a wonderful way to learn more about God's word.
