Publisher's Summary

A. N. Wilson has been thinking about the Bible, and reading it, since he read theology for a year at university. Martin Luther King was 'reading the Bible' when he started the Civil Rights Movement. When Michelangelo painted the fresco cycles in the Sistine Chapel, he was 'reading the Bible'.

In The Book of the People, A. N. Wilson explores how readers and thinkers have approached the Bible and how it might be read today. Charting his own relationship with the Bible over a lifetime of writing, Wilson argues that it remains relevant even in a largely secular society as a philosophical work, a work of literature and a cultural touchstone.

    "Likeable, accessible, thought-provoking"

    A likeable, highly accessible and gently thought-provoking exploration of the Bible and its origins. Although rather a short book, I learned much from it and enjoyed it throughout.
