God's LibraryeBook - 2012
If you have called someone the apple of your eye, a lily among thorns or the salt of the earth, you have been quoting the Bible. But did you know it? The Bible is the bestselling book of all time. It has changed the course of nations, inspired many of the world's great works of art, culture, philanthropy and architecture. But how many people today know what it says? God's Library is designed to persuade the skeptical reader just how essential it is to be educated in the Bible. It also introduces you to the kind of literature that is found in the Good Book, when it was written and for what purposes. It also tries to answer the question why the Bible has had such an enormous influence on individuals and societies for over two thousand years. Greg Clarke is the CEO of Bible Society Australia and teaches at the University of Sydney and Macquarie University.
