It's The Most Influential Book in Western Civilization. It's in practically every home in America, yet few of us have a clue what's going on within its gold-lined pages. Until now. From the Good Book's sex and violence to the thrilling development of the canon-no, seriously: thrilling-this is your guide to getting the most out of a book that's wilder, weirder and more entertaining than you thought. You'll find: The Biblicabulary (a glossary of terms), Know Your Characters (a biblical roll call), The Bible at Breakneck Speed (an ill-advised plot summary), Versions and Perversions (a guide to modern translations), The Brief History of Holy Writ (an exhilarating timeline). Book jacket.
