Em seu nome, travaram-se guerras, houve escândalos, políticas foram forjadas e reformuladas por causa de suas palavras. Teólogos tanto o defenderam quanto o insultaram. Céticos fizeram o mesmo. Se você é um típico integrante da raça humana, você deve ter se admirado muitas vezes com a confusão que envolve a Bíblia. A pergunta permanece: “O que ela realmente diz?”
Aqui está um livro que explica os principais temas da Bíblia, de maneira clara e lógica. Ao invés de se concentrar em uma parte — e deixar o todo de lado — o autor une o texto todo cronologicamente em um grande drama universal, olhando para os acontecimentos da perspectiva daqueles que experimentaram a história enquanto ela se desenrolava. Os resultados são às vezes cômicos, às vezes assustadores — mas sempre fieis ao sentido do texto.
Depois de terminar de ler este livro, talvez você creia “No Livro” como nunca antes. Ou talvez você decida não fazê-lo. A abordagem objetiva do autor deixa essa decisão em suas mãos.
“Embora eu tenha frequentado a igreja por mais de 30 anos, a Bíblia nunca fez sentido para mim. Era somente um conjunto de histórias desconexas. Agora vejo a Bíblia em clara harmonia e lógica. É realmente inacreditável”.

It’s been called “the most misunderstood book in history.”
Wars have been fought in its name, scandals have been precipitated by it, politics shaped and reshaped at its word. Theologians have both defended and reviled it. Skeptics have done the same. If you are a typical member of the human race, you have often been perplexed by all the “fuss” surrounding the Bible. The question remains, “What does it really say?”
Here is a book that explains the greatest of Bible themes clearly and logically. Rather than focusing on one part—and missing the whole—the author chronologically binds together the entire text into one great universal drama, looking at events from the perspective of those who experienced history in the making. The results are sometimes comical, sometimes frightening—but always true to the intent of the text.
When you are done reading it, you may find yourself believing “the Book” like you never have before. Or you may decide not to. The author’s objective approach leaves that decision up to you.
“Even though I had attended church for over 30 years, the Bible never made sense to me. It was just a bunch of disjointed stories. Now the Bible all fits together in a clear, logical manner. It really is incredible.”

Are there solutions to everyday problems? Can there be meaning or purpose in life? Is it possible to know why we are here and where we are going? Why is there so much suffering and death? Is there life after death? Can we be enlightened here and now? Am I destined to lose all identity—to become part of a great nothingness? Is it true that there are no answers?
