"Scholars and students will be gratified by this pragmatic but profoundly insightful volume. The Bible is a complex, textured volume that can amaze and inspire, but also confuse and perplex. Cox has given readers a great gift--a clear path toward a fuller and richer appreciation for the sacred text."--Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"In this important book, Cox takes readers of all ages and all spiritual traditions on an excursion through some of the most confounding and deeply difficult questions bible reading has to offer. Best of all, he shows us how to go beyond the words and so become more spiritual."--Joan Chittister, OSB, author of Between the Dark and the Daylight: Embracing the Contradictions of Life
