Favorite books on the Bible

  • Jun 10, 2011
I'm trying to make a list of books I've used in Bible studies and Bible stories. I'll add the list as I find time, or as I read more....
1
Zondervan Atlas of the Bible
Always helps having some idea of where things happened, where people went, how events related to the rest of the world...
2
The Miracles of Exodus: A Scientist's Discovery of
One of my favorites. The author really is a scientist and he really makes sense of the events and stories of Exodus.
See the full review, "Brings science and history to life".
3
Origins: A Reformed Look at Creation, Design, and
Easy reading. Nice explanations. Faith and science, just my sort of thing.
See the full review, "Informative, faithful and respectful".
4
River Out of Eden Richard Dawkins
Okay, this one's definitely not a Bible book :) But it's the first book I read that took me beyond "Evolution makes sense" to a place where evolution couldn't fail to make sense.
5
Noah's Flood: The New Scientific Discoveries About
It was kind of fun, learning how the flood might be real and how real science might investigate it.
See the full review, "The where, when, why, how and maybes of Noah's Flood".
6
The Stones Cry Out: What Archaeology Reveals About
It was kind of fun learning where Sodom and Gomorrah might be too, and how they might have been destroyed.
See the full review, "Bible archeology and some fascinating finds".
7
Abraham: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths
A truly wonderful "journey" that cuts through traditional misconceptions and distrust. I really enjoyed it.
8
Who Wrote the Bible?
Who would have thought an investigation into the human identities of Bible writers would bring the Bible stories so vividly to life?
See the full review, "Provocative title. Really great research".
9
Battles of the Bible: A Military History of
My husband likes military history. I like the Bible. And this book makes the Bible make military sense.
See the full review, "Suddenly the Old Testament doesn't seem so blood-thirsty".
10
Letters to Auntie Fori: The 5,000-Year History of
I have to add this one. It's not just about the Bible of course, but I really enjoyed reading it and learning what came next.
See the full review, "An Amazing Read".
11
The Language of Science and Faith: Straight
Easily understood answers to popular questions and arguments, with well-researched historical background too.
See the full review, "Easy reading, history faith and science".
