Ladies and Gentlemen the Bible!
Yes, it's the greatest story ever told, but let's face it: It always could have used a little punching up. In "Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bible!, " Jonathan Goldstein brings human depth, humour, and snappier dialogue to millennia-old biblical stories. Goldstein's version of the Bible answers the questions you need to know: Wouldn't a person get bored living inside a whale? How did Joseph explain Mary's pregnancy to the guys at work? How could anyone be as dense as Samson?
