Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Dundes offers a new and exciting way to resolve some of the mysteries and contradictions that evolved during the Bible's prewritten legacy and that persist today. He unearths and contrasts multiple versions of nearly every major biblical event, including the creation of woman, the flood, the ten commandments, the Sermon on the Mount, the Lord's Prayer, and the inscription on the Cross.

Book News Annotation:

Might there be more than Ten Commandments? Applying the analytical framework of folklore, Dundes (anthropology and folklore, U. of California-Berkeley) seeks to comprehend variant versions of biblical narratives. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
