What the Good Book Didn't Say: Popular Myths and Misconceptions about the Bible Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For anyone who has been taught that the forbidden fruit in the Garden of Eden was an apple (it wasn't — apples don't grow in the Middle East) or that Lucifer and Satan are the same, here is the book that clarifies, once and for all, what the Bible really says.<P>What the Good Book Didn't Say asks a simple yet provocative question: How well do you really know the Bible? In this fascinating book, best-selling Christian trivia author J. Stephen Lang shatters the myths of the most common falsehoods taught about the Bible and provides the facts. For example, Noah didn't take two of every animal onto his ark, and the Bible does not say that "money is the root of all evil" (in fact, the Bible really says "the love of money is the root of all evil").<P>What the Good Book Didn't Say addresses the fundamental issues in a straightforward and entertaining manner, and examines contemporary secular assumptions about the Bible such as the belief that the New Testament is anti-Semitic and that the Bible is anti-sex and anti-women. At the same time, Lang corrects some misguided contemporary Christian assumptions like the prosperity gospel. This book dispels misconceptions by directing readers back the source: the Bible itself.<P>Believers of all faiths, Bible students, and skeptics alike will find this an instructive and intriguing resource that will deepen their understanding of the most important work in the Western world. The most commonly believed myths — and the real truths behind them — include: <BR>-- Adam and Eve's original sin was sex<BR>-- St. Peter is at the gates of heaven<BR>-- The devil and his demons reside in hell<BR>-- The Israelites crossed the Red Sea<BR>-- Jesus and John theBaptist were cousins

Synopsis:

A corrective guide to the Christian Bible clears up popular confusion over the "apple" of Adam and Eve and the true nature of the devil, among many other tantilizing falsehoods attributed to the "Good Book." Original.
