A FB friend just posted his favorable review of this book.
Conclusion: Stanhope’s is a must-read for anyone who wants to learn about the fascinating historical, literary, and cultural contexts of all those biblical passages that get brought up so much in most creation/evolution debates. If you want to know what those passages are actually saying, Stanhope’s book is a vital resource. Very readable, quite funny in parts, and immensely satisfying. If you want to properly interpret these biblical texts, you need to read (Mis)Interpreting Genesis .
