Wish I liked it better

This was a tough book for me to get through despite it's slim size. A good portion of it went over my head - not sure if it was the way she approached the subject or if I just didn't have my head in the game. What I did take away was a greater appreciation for the different ways people have related to the bible over it's history and how attitudes have varied so widely with respect to how to interpret it.

After seeing the author on Bill Moyers I was very impressed with her and was hoping to read several of her books, but now I'm not sure.
