The Bible, the book that contains stories of nine foot giants, families who live to be a thousand years old, food that falls from Heaven, and epic wars; cities turn to ash from the rage of tyrant, kings cast down, men dying in the dust of battle; one of the most controversial books in history. Some people claim, it even holds the answers to life and death. The Bible was written by 40 different authors, representing a diverse group of people, they range from a doctor, a few shepherds, farmers, fishermen, tax collectors, and kings. With over six billion copies in print the Bible is actually a combination of 66 books written over 16,000 years; this makes it one of the oldest books in existence. It’s also one of the most documented books ever; there are over ten thousand agent manuscripts supporting its accuracy and consistency with original writings. Parts of the Bible, like Proverbs, read like self-help: it is better to live alone in the desert than with a crabby, complaining wife, or give beer to those who are perishing, wine to those in anguish. Other parts read like love poetry the conservatives don’t want you to hear: you are slender like a palm tree and your breasts are like its cluster of fruit, I said I will climb that palm tree and take hold of this fruit. There are rules to live by too, like don’t murder people. Four of the books of the Bible are biographical accounts of Jesus, called the Gospels and then there are historical books about people like Moses, Noah, and occasionally bears: then to bears came out of the woods and mulled 33 of the youths. Right now copies are being smuggled across borders, it’s sitting in the pocket of a pastor being arrested, and it’s being read in jail cells and on death bed, it was tucked in the hole of the Mayflower. Without a doubt, it’s a provocative and controversial book; love it or hate, believe it or don’t, but decide for yourself, as the number one bestselling book in history, it just might be worth the read.
