Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I enjoyed this book because I've always been interested in the Bible but am not the type to read dull academic books about it. The author presents a lot of fascinating factoids without sounding like some boring college professor. It has 1,001 individual entries, none of them longer than a page, and it's written in a user-friendly style. I think it would appeal to religious people, but I also think people who are just generally interested in culture and history would find a lot here.
