  • By Mr J on 13 March 2017

    good resource

  • By Rob the Greek on 1 July 2017

    This great book is both sobering and liberating at the same time. Sobering in that it places scripture into the context of its time and surrounding thought patterns/worldview which can feel as thought it's just reflecting the prevailing culture in its imagery, mythology and story structure and yet liberating in freeing us from a narrow constrained view which, in giving context and humanity back to the writers, still manages to reveal a "higher" view of the world than the belief structures of the surrounding culture. Well worth the investment
