Summary

A distinctive Bible study, Holy Enigma! takes a lighthearted look at the most ancient stories of the Near East. It introduces candor, humor, and commonsense into a careful assessment of God’s word. In a heartfelt desire to spawn interest in reading the Bible, the author opens Pandora’s Box by questioning the divinity of some of the most bizarre text:
This book was three years in the making. It evolved from a humor book, to a theology book, to a philosophy book, to somewhere in between. Because I take my religion seriously and have great respect for the Holy Bible, I’ve re-written this book so many times as to be haunted by the challenge. All my life I’ve heard baseless arguments trying to explain away troublesome Bible issues, and it dawned on me that no one had thought to ask God about the Good Book. I’ve come to believe the Creator wants us to read, think, take note and stand up for His side of the story. I concluded it might be helpful to lay all the most controversial passages on the table and let readers decide for themselves. Chapters 1, 2 and 3 take on the dogma of “biblical inerrancy.” Chapters 4, 5 and 6 cover many of the most troublesome verses in the Old and New Testaments. Chapter 7 briefs the entire book of Revelation, and Chapter 8 offers a prayer of reconciliation.
