The world is rapidly dividing between those who take biblical narratives as the literal word of God - claiming that they are historically and scientifically true - and those who dismiss those narratives as quaint or even foolish fairy tales.
What's In It for Me invites the listener to discover a middle ground that takes biblical narratives seriously without regard to their historical or scientific truth. The "truth" of these stories has nothing to do with "Did this really happen?" Their truth emerges in the valuable lessons these stories can teach all of us.
As we walk the rich middle ground of biblical narrative, we shall keep one question constantly in mind: Where am I in the text? In other words, "What do these stories teach me that can help me be a more self-aware, caring, and compassionate human being?"

Very informative and thought provoking
As a devout Christian but a person who is ever searching for more information about Jewish religion, I found this book extremely well written. The reader will find the narrative of the first two books in the bible enjoyable reading but also containing useful perspective on our own purpose of life as it relates to God. Highly recommend book whatever your own religious identity might be.
