Summary

The Bible for Grown-Ups neither requires nor rejects belief. It sets out to help intelligent adults make sense of the Bible - a book that is too large to swallow whole yet too important in our history and culture to spit out.

Why do the creation stories in Genesis contradict each other? Did the Exodus really happen? Was King David a historical figure? Why is Matthew's account of the birth of Jesus so different from Luke's? Why was St Paul so rude about St Peter? Every Biblical author wrote for their own time and their own audience. In short, nothing in the Bible is quite what it seems.

Literary critic Simon Loveday's book - a labour of love that has taken over a decade to write - is a thrilling listen, for Christians and anyone else, which will overturn everything you thought you knew about the Good Book.
