About the Author

Amanda Hope Haley is a lover of the Bible--its God, its words, and its history. She has a master of theological studies in Hebrew Scripture and Interpretation from Harvard University. She contributed to The Voice Bible as a translator, writer, and editor; has been a content editor, ghost writer, and co-writer for popular Christian authors; and authored two of her own books. Amanda and her husband, David, live in Tennessee, with their always-entertaining basset hound, Copper.


"Amanda Haley will inspire you to look at the Scriptures with new lenses. Combining the best of academic research with her unique brand of humor, topped with a dash of pop culture, she hosts a wild ride through the geography, history, and culture of the Bible. This book will enlighten, inform, and entertain you. Most importantly, you will be equipped with the right tools, resources, and questions to engage biblical study. You will be motivated to look at the Scriptures again from a new perspective. And you might find yourself surprised by what's in there...and even more surprised by what's not."
--Heather Zempel, author of Community Is Messy and Big Change, Small Groups

"Amanda Haley has written an incredibly timely and important work. She bravely navigates the obstacles many of us encounter during faith deconstruction, all while keeping the heart of God the North Star. Blending common sense and scholarly integrity, Amanda has created a seminary-level hermeneutics course in one approachable, holistic, and relatable book."
--Dr. Ashley Davis, DMin, author and spiritual director
