Summary
"This epic, thrilling journey through Bible scholarship and ancient religion shows how much of Scripture is historically false--yet the ancient writings also resound with theologies that crisscrossed the primeval world and that direct us today toward a deep, inner, authentic experience of the truly sacred,"--Amazon.com

Summary
From a historical perspective, the Bible is shockingly, provably wrong -- a point supported by today's best archeological and historical scholarship but not well understood by (or communicated to) the public. Yet this emphatically does not mean that the Bible isn't, in some very real measure, true, argues leading scholar of mysticism Richard Smoley
