Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite Immaculate Assumptions: All the Stuff You Heard about the Bible that Isn't True by Cornelia Scott Cree is a one-of-its-kind book, one that examines the common assumptions that many Christians and believers have grown to embrace about the Bible. In this slim book, the author challenges 35 of such assumptions, inviting readers to rethink what they believe, offering powerful references from the Scriptures and corroborating her arguments with logic, the backing of religious texts, and common sense. This is a book that will alter the way most of us look at and live our relationship with God. It will also alter the false image that some of us have about God and our ultimate destiny. Cornelia Scott Cree brings into her work the many years of her experience as a biblical scholar and a missionary, responding to questions that haunt the human spirit, from the existence of hell, to God’s apparent powerlessness in the face of evil, to the veracity of the message of the Bible. I particularly loved the author’s take on the idea of hell, one that rejoins the teaching of Pope Francis on the notion of hell. It is rare for some preachers to recognize God’s word outside of the Scriptures, but the author recognizes that God is bigger than what we know about Him in our Scriptures. Immaculate Assumptions is a very simple and down-to-earth perspective on the assumptions we have grown to embrace about our faith. It’s a compelling invitation to take a second look at what we believe. It’s highly recommended reading for those who want to reconcile their faith with God’s gift of reason.
