POCKET GUIDE TO THE BIBLE: A Little Book About the Big Book
The Bible, the best-selling book of all time, has never been short on controversy. And yet, most Americans know very little about the big book apart from what they learned in Sunday School.
Using his trademark humor, sarcasm, and slight dose of irreverence to entertain and educate readers on the complex issue of the Bible, author Jason Boyett explores the book’s weirder and wilder side in his newly released POCKET GUIDE TO THE BIBLE: A Little Book About the Big Book (Jossey-Bass, a Wiley imprint; August 2009; $12.95 / Paper; ISBN: 978-0-470-37309-5).
Designed to painlessly tackle religious topics in a succinct format, POCKET TO THE BIBLE provides a brief and clever look into the characters, the cannon, and the controversy. Quirky content includes:
- A cast of Biblical characters and each of their high and low points in history
- The various versions and perversions of the Bible and why you should read them all
- Seven lesser known Bible stories that probably shouldn’t be told to children
Perfect for gifts, small group studies, or personal enjoyment, POCKET GUIDE TO THE BIBLE, along with the other newly released titles in the series – Pocket Guide to the Afterlife and Pocket Guide to Sainthood, is small in size, hip in design, and cleverly illustrated. After reading it, you’ll finalize realize what’s so good about the Good Book.
