Interesting Facts Fast  Dec 10, 2007
This is a great "bathroom book" can be read in 2 minute installments. The title tells you all you need to know; It is nothing more than 101 interesting questions and 101 fast (but credible and entertaining) answers. I have given this book to several people and I have always received two thank you's...the first when they get the book and the second after they have started to read it.
What's the Bible all about, anyway?  Aug 11, 2007
Raymond Brown is recognized as one of the foremost biblical scholars of the later 20th century, and this slim volume is the product of his own studying and teaching of Holy Scripture. A priest of the Roman Catholic Church, the late Fr Brown approached the bible as both divinely inspired and humanly influenced, but not in the manner of the Jesus Seminar folks, with whom he has very little in common. I would describe him as someone who was not afraid to ask tough questions and someone who never made up easy answers. He was true to the text and the history behind the text, and the reader will come away from this book with a renewed trust in the meanings of the bible and an appreciation for the human agency that helped give it its shape.

The 101 questions cover the whole gamut of expected topics, such as translation accuracy, divine vs human inspiration, genuine vs apocryphal books, Church guidance in reading it, literal vs allegorical and symbolic or more, biblical criticism and fundamentalism, are the Gospels true or myth, miracles, the life of Jesus, Mary, early church administration, the sacraments, worship, formation of the canon of Scripture, the papacy and church authority, etc.

Who is this book meant for? I would say anyone with an interest, and it isn't meant for specialists. It's meant for folks like us who want to know, but don't have time to go to school to do all the research ourselves, learn Hebrew, Aramaic, Greek and Latin etc. Read this book if you are looking to debunk the bible as pure myth, and read it if you think everything in the OT is true in that it is supposed to be understood as historical fact at every turn of the page. Read this book if you are not scared to enter into the history of the text and be confidant that you'll still come out a committed Christian. It is a book for everyone.

Incarnation Myth or Fact (Concordia Scholarship Today)
The Incomparable Father Brown explains it all  Apr 24, 2007
There are many ways to approach biblical studies, but few more satisfying and thought-provoking than Raymond Brown's way. In this volume, Brown tackles many of the thorniest questions posed by his listeners and (mostly) responds in ways that are accessible to the intelligent layperson. That he does this without sacrificing the complexities of his field is quite amazing.

Brown has compiled a list of real questions from those who have attended his lectures. His responses carefully lay out the view for rather controversial topics - such as the place of symbolic language in the Christian Infancy narratives. He makes his ideas seem plausible without sacrificing their religious significance. After reading Brown, one may think the unthinkable: that the Star of Bethlehem is less of a historical celestial phenomenon than a literary and theological one. On the other hand, Brown is rock solid in his belief in the bodily resurrection of Jesus. This event, experienced by a myriad of Christ's followers, is unlike the infancy stories, for which where seems to be no consistent source.

To biblical literalists, Brown is anathema. Yet it is they, and not Brown, who saddle biblical students with impossible burdens. To literalists, Jesus cleansed the Temple twice - once at the beginning of his ministry (as per John) and once at the end (as per he Synoptics). It is Father Brown who neatly solves this mystery by restoring to the gospel writers their intent - which was to proclaim the Lord, not to offer a blog-style listing of consecutive events.

101 Questions is sometimes a bit too technical for the novice biblical student. His answers are precise and nuanced, maddeningly so for those looking for sound bites and easy answers. Then again, Brown argues from the basis of his Roman Catholic tradition -- not that here is anything necessarily wrong with that. But always, Brown acts as a New Testament scholar, taking the scriptures as seriously as anyone. He believes Christ founded a Church, but not in the sense of anticipating its precise liturgies and sacramental structure. But if one wants to understand where the scholarly consensus lies on the virginal conception, on Jesus's brothers and sisters, on the proper way to undertand miracle stories, on the formation of the biblical canon, on how to deal with fundametalists and a score (actually five score and 1) issues of vital importance to Christians, this volume is a terrific place to start.
101 THE BEST  Apr 10, 2007
I was referred to Father Brown from an article I read and since that point I have never been disappointed. He is a very concise journalist and scholar on the Bible. This book is perfect for anyone who needs some detailed answers on subjects contained in the Bible that you had questions about. I highly recommend this for reference also.
