Stories convey truths through plot, character, and point of view. Nowhere is that more true than in the Bible.

The writers and editors are indeed to be commended for their willingness to understand biblical imagination and narrative richness. This book should be a real mindstretcher and encourage many people to return to the Bible with newly opened eyes."
