Description

This riveting and controversial book reveals how the ancient editors of the Bible used the myths and legends of neighboring cultures to build the foundation of the monotheistic religions of today.

101 Myths of the Bible exposes the contradictions imbedded in many of the tales and events in the Old Testament, exploring the story behind the story to determine what really happened. Author Gary Greenberg draws on arguments endorsed by most biblical scholars, and provides new insights into questions that have puzzled the academic community for years.

101 Myths of the Bible presents remarkable truths about widely-held beliefs, including:
*King David's bodyguard, not David, killed Goliath
*Noah's Ark did not land on mount Ararat
*Samson did not pull down a Philistine temple
*There are at least two versions of the Ten Commandments
