What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"There are two kinds of people who need Surviving the Bible: (1) people who know they are unfamiliar with the world's most important book, and (2) people who think they know it all. Both will find Christian Piatt's introductions and reflections to be warm, winsome, accessible, and downright fascinating. He's a brilliant scholar disguised as your best friend, and he'll help you gain real nourishment from the Bible one small, delicious bite at a time." -- Brian D. McLaren, author of The Great Spiritual Migration

"Surviving the Bible takes a modern approach to guiding us through an ancient text. Thanks to plain language, thoughtful takeaways, and fun pop-culture connections, reading through the Bible in a year is now far less intimidating and well within reach for both the dedicated student and recreational theologian." -- Jamie Wright, author of The Very Worst Missionary

"It is much easier to talk about the Bible than to read it. Christian Piatt has managed to jump the hurdles and overcome the hesitations to starting. This book is a textual treat packed full of clarity, humor, and 'biblical' invitations to take and read. I had no idea Christian was the Scriptural Sherpa! Get this book and start hiking--biblically." -- Tripp Fuller, founder of Homebrewed Christianity podcast network and author of The Homebrewed Christianity Guide to Jesus
