The authors present a pleasant accessible walk through the Old and New Testaments. Curiously, they note "allegorical" passages, and also claim that the Scripture is inerrant. Most folks who claim that the pleroma of the Word is without error, are either unfamiliar with the text or with the definition of the word "inerrant".

And the authors do not hesitate to ADD to the Word. For example, in suggesting that a passage about Noah and his curse of Ham (an admittedly and entirely innocent child of one of Noah's sons who saw Noah naked) is justification for subordination of the black race. The text suggests nothing of the sort.

In addition, the authors "mansplain" the subordination of women as taken from the rib of Adam. The un-named woman was to "help" Adam, and he names her. But even that text, which is disputed and contradicted by two other creation sequences, does not actually "say" women are to be submissive or 2d-class to males.

The authors also repeat the ironic anti-semitic slander against Jews for the murder of Jesus and Saint Steven. The scriptural text itself does not contain a single word of any of these ADDED insinuations. The words of the Bible, if taken literally, require fairness, justice and equality. ( )

The Bible has been a bestseller for centuries, and we all think we know our Scriptures, but do you know why Noah built the Ark? What happened at Sodom and Gomorrah? Just how many miracles did Jesus perform? For instant revelation, this is the essential guide to the Old and New Testaments. 30-Second Bible offers an insight into the meaning and significance of the Bible's key characters and stories in half a minute each, using nothing more that two pages, 300 words and one picture.

Illustrated with divine graphics, 30-Second Bible offers the quickest pilgrimage from Genesis to Revelation without a tower of babble.… (more)
