The Good Book: Reading the Bible with Mind and Heart (Paperback)
"The Bible and the social and moral consequences that derive from its interpretation are all too important to be left in the hands of the pious or the experts, and too significant to be ignored and trivialized by the uninformed and indifferent.
"Easily the best contemporary book on the Bible for thoughtful people."
"Lively...offers a crash course in biblical literacy in a nuanced but easy-to-understand style."
"This is a reading not from the right or the left but from the living, loving heart of scripture."
“...Reflects Gomes’s great intelligence, open mind, humanity, wisdom, and struggle to understand the meaning of life and God’s word.”
"...One of America's most compelling preachers ... a writer with flair and eloquence."
"A riveting tour of this holy book with the guide both witty and wise ... great work of scholarship and imagination."
