Reviews - What do our customers think?
Moves from a traditional orientation.  May 27, 1999
This book offers fresh insight into the often-puzzling text of the Bible. How can we reconcile the many conflicting messages to be found in Holy Scripture? The author extensively develops a convincing and illuminating metaphor, that the Bible is not a seamless, coherent transcription of the word of God. Rather, it is a document compiled through time by a community of faith, primarily concerned with ethical rules for preserving their communities. Admittedly, various mischief-makers, scoundrels. anti-feminists, and slave owners are portrayed, alongside those prophets whose eloquent insights into issues of peace, justice, love, right behavior, the meaning of suffering, and loyalty to kin have inspired humankind through the centuries. Thus, it acts as an album in which our origins, progress, triumphs and wrong turnings as a family of faith are candidly presented and explored. Good's book discsusses the Bible as a whole, with the books of both testaments presented in the sequence in which they were written. This approach provides an accurate historical context for each of the books, written by God-inspired authors, each one a product of his time and place. It also helps to clarify the evolutiohnary process under which our spiritual and ethical understandings have evolved. "The entire Bible can be embraced. Even those parts with an unsavory ethic can be accepted as insight into the development of one's spiritual ancestry." (p. 17)

Also highlighted in Dr. Good's approach is the family relationship that exists between Judaism and Christianty. One of the most healing aspects of Good's scholarship is to emphasize Christianity's "debt to and its organic union with its parent Jewish faith. The rewards are great if we can reclaim our Jewish ancsestry." (p. 134) "The New Testament acquires a different coloration when it is read as a continuation of and in the context of its Hebrew ancestry." (p.128) Use of this book in an adult Bible study class provokes stimulating discussions. An appendix includes a history of Biblical writings correlated with "decisive events, " known to have occurred concurrently with the writings. In addition, there is a Study Guide at the back of the book that includes summaries and a generous collection of discussion questions for each of the eleven chapters and suggestions for reading to prepare for the next class. This unique volume with its perspective on our relationship to and understanding of a book that has been held sacred for over 2000 years, guarantees strong reader responses. It moves away from a more traditional orientation of obedience toward one of comprehension. Two thumbs up for this book!

A systematic and engaging presentation of the Bible  Oct 30, 1998
Jack Good's The Bible: Faith's Family Album is a systematic and thorough discussion of the Bible, and I found it very engaging. For someone like myself, who has been "churched" all my life, but for whom the an overall sense of the Bible remained somewhat vague, it was extremely educational. The author writes respectfully and with affection, but always with a surprising willingness to consider the deeper context for the "family arguments" that are contained within the Bible's pages, including the nature of God, the way in which God is to be served, and the roles of men and women within the faith family. I came away from this book with a much deeper understanding for the deeply rooted complexities of the Judeo-Christian faith family.
