My Kind of Bite-Size Book  Dec 27, 2004
Maybe I've spent too much time playing video games and surfing the Net, so yeah, I'll admit I just can't read through a long book any more. But I can handle one like this, 1,001 items that are mostly one paragraph each, all connected in some way with the Bible. I expected there would be items dealing with the people and places in the Bible, and there are, but there are chapters dealing with movies about the Bible, songs, art works, even words and phrases that are rooted in the Bible. I guess the author figured most of us aren't even aware that we use 'Bible language' all the time without realizing it, and he was right, at least in my case. Anyway, it's written with a kind of light tone and it isn't boring, and I wish there were more of these bite-size books around.
Too many errors, off topic, too low-brow  Jul 7, 2003
This book is a very easy read. It would be perfect for air or train travel where it would be difficult to concentrate because of noise or other conditions. Unfortunately the book 1) has many substantive errors 2) treats difficult subjects in a cursory manner 3) includes entries which are entirely unrelated to the Bible 4) betrays Lang's personal views at the expense of objectivity.

For those who want a readable but much more scholarly approach to the Bible in a question and answer format, I highly recommend the work of the late Father Raymond Brown.

Stephen Lang's book has many errors of substance, such as one entry where he says consubstantion is a memorial while transubstantiation is the actual physical presence of Christ in the bread and wine. Actually both consubstantion and transubstantiation assert the physical presence of Christ, but consubstantiation asserts the presence of Christ is present simultaneously with the real physical presence of the wine and bread. The theories of Christ's presence in the bread and wine of communion are 1) no presence, it's just a memorial 2) a spiritual presence 3) consubstantiation - the real presence of Christ alongside the real presence of the bread and wine 4) transubstantiation - just the real presence of Christ (the wine and bread are transformed physically into Christ). These are very important differences because they relate to the inability of Christians of different denominations to take part in each others' communion sacraments, and the possibility of the different denominations to become one Church.

Save yourself some disappoint and either get this book from your local library or buy a better book such as Raymond Brown's.

More Than I Expected  Apr 9, 2003
Some books are disappointments, but this one actually gave me more than I expected. I figured it would include a lot of interesting factoids about people and places in the Bible. But it also gives some really fascinating info about how the Bible has affected language, art, literature, movies, etc. I was really intrigued by the section about familiar phrases that (to my surprise) are found in the Bible. I also had not realized how many movies had been based on the Bible, not to mention the many world-famous authors whose books were in some way based on the Bible. This was a real education not just about the Bible, but about culture too.
A Fun Read, and a Good Education  Mar 22, 2003
My family members and friends know I like "browsy" books I can take to the beach or while I'm waiting at the doctor's office. This is the "browsiest" book I've ever had, and a lot of fun--1,001 items all relating to the Bible, talking about its notable people and places, and also all kinds of pop culture things like movies, books, songs, words and phrases, anything related to the Bible. Each of the 1,001 is brief, just one paragraph, sometimes 2 or 3. It is very "bite-size," which I think is great. One thing I liked about it also is that it isn't preachy, just a lot of good information. However, my church's pastor told us he uses tidbits from this book to liven up his sermons at times. I think Sunday school teachers could use it the same way.
Long Title  Jun 26, 2002
I love this book and I own it, so I can say without a doubt that it's both entertaining and informative. But I disagree with the title of the book, it should be something like, 1,001 things about the Bible and other religious topics. For example, one of the "things" mentioned in the book pertains to Leonardo Da Vinci, which as we all know is not a figure found anywhere in the Bible. But his reason for being in this book is simple, he was the master artist behind the famous "Last Supper" painting, which I found very intriquing since I never knew who actually did the splendid art. In fact, an entire chapter (chapter 15 Music and Art, with numbers 811-867 of the list of things) lists people and selected works of various artists, who in some form or fashion, have used the topic of God in their life and/or their craft. And this is just one such chapter, there are others. So the book is NOT totally dedicated to the Bible itself. This is not to say that this book is not fascinating. On the contrary, it's one of the most fascinating books I have ever encountered and well worth the money that was paid for it ( it was bought by my sister as a Christmas present for me). You will learn interesting facts about the Bible you may or may not have been aware of, and about famous people. This is a book that anyone can read and enjoy. I higly recommend it.
