Bible Babel
Making Sense of the Most Talked-about Book of All Time


With engaging wit and straightforward information, Bible Babel: Making Sense of the Most Talked About Book of All Time addresses the biggest questions, misconceptions, and general curiosity that people have about the Bible — what it is, what’s in it, where it came from, and how people use it. This book provides biblical literacy without simply summarizing the Bible or using religious belief to explain the Good Book. Written by a public university professor, Bible Babel is not encumbered by scholarly jargon or technicalities; but it is based on the best biblical scholarship. Bible Babel is for the religious and non-religious alike. It doesn’t try either to convert readers or to wreck their beliefs. Rather, this book gives people what they don’t get in church or school so that they can understand arguments about the Bible, answer vexing questions, appreciate artistic and literary references, and simply interpret the all-time bestseller for themselves.
