Listener Opinions

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Neil | 1/21/2011

    " A very quick overview of the history of the Old Testament (Tanakh) and the New Testament with several interesting anecdotes. Not a great deal of depth, but very good for anyone interested in a quick general history of Jewish and Christian scriptures. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Coyle | 3/6/2010

    " A decent summary of the history of Jewish and Christian Canons through the eyes of a theologically liberal Eastern Orthodox convert. Worth the read, even if his conclusion is a bit vague when it comes to actually determining whose Bible it is... "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 by QVT | 7/10/2009

    " Pop-history garbage. If you're looking for a history of the bible, look elsewhere. If you're looking for a goodread, look elsewhere. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Joshua | 5/13/2009

    " Pelikan's ability to digest and synthesize the varieties of Christian tradition is impressive. This book demonstrates his very generous mind. "
