Being an Art History major I must know a great deal about the stories of the Bible. I can honestly say I hardly knew anything so I decided to do some outside reading. I didn't read this book for any religious enlightenment - mainly just to learn what I feel I am behind in (I'm an educated woman and didn't know what a Gospel was!) and as entertainment.

Davis is straight to the point and hilarious!
He incorporates the stories of the Bible with what research has been done about it and he always has a jovial way of putting every story.
It is organized so that if you need to find something, you can do so with a fair amount of ease.
Also, I just read it straight through; a few pages each night before I go to bed. I feel it helps me to become a more well rounded person so that I can learn about everyone's beliefs and I can learn more for what I study (and not have people whisper that I'm going to hell - hehehehehe)
