Publisher's Summary

Bringing to life the world of the Old and New Testaments, the acclaimed creator of the bestselling Don’t Know Much About® series transforms dry, difficult reading into colorful and realistic accounts. Relying on new research and improved translations, Kenneth C. Davis uncovers some amazing questions and contradictions about what the Bible really says:

  • Jericho’s walls may have tumbled down because the city lies on a fault line.
  • Moses never parted the Red Sea.
  • There was a Jesus, but he wasn’t born on Christmas and he probably wasn’t an only child.

Don’t Know Much About® the Bible entertains and astonishes, but more important, provides a much better understanding of the world’s most-owned but least-understood anthology, with much more fun along the way.

    "Listened for several hours"
    What did you like best about Don't Know Much about the Bible? What did you like least?

    Listened for several hours and realized that I don't think I HEARD a word......can't put my finger on it.......poor narration or dry story matter.....just did not get my attention for a single moment. Now trying to figure out how to delete from my library.....


    Would you be willing to try another book from Kenneth C. Davis? Why or why not?

    I never give up on anyone.


    What three words best describe Arthur Morey and Lorna Raver ’s performance?

    dry.....monotone......forgetable.....


    Do you think Don't Know Much about the Bible needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    "decent survey of the topic"
    Any additional comments?

    This book is a good place to start if you are interested in an overview of the topic. If you are already familiar with the historical setting surrounding the rise of the Judeo-Christian-Muslim movements you might want to jump straight over to someone like Bart Ehrman for a more detailed, more scholarly experience. One thing i did not like about this book was that in several places the author gives historical timelines to give the reader historical context, but he mixes historical and legendary persons and events without giving the reader any disclaimers, and making no effort to differentiate between fact and fiction. All in all the author seems to bend over backwards to not offend believers, and has produced a book about a potentially "hot" topic that believers, non-believers, and interested bystanders can all read without becoming either offended or intellectually insulted. But, this book is definitely a primer, not for the reader already well versed in the subject unless you're looking for a convenient review.
