Alan Ray: The Bible... Fact or fiction? Well... Yes, maybe.
Think of the couples and lovers you find there... Adam and Eve, Sampson and Delilah...David and... Jonathan?
How many versions of creation can you find... And which one can you believe?
David Plotz thinks of himself as a "proud but non-observant Jew" who actually did something few of us have ever done. Not only did he read the Bible, he actually thought about what he read. And then he posted a really wonderful series on Slate.com called "Blogging the Bible."
Now he's put it all between hard covers in a book titled Good Book: The Bizarre, Hilarious, Disturbing, Marvelous, and Inspiring Things I Learned When I Read Every Single Word of the Bible
