A recent study reported that the percentage of Christians in America had declined. It went on further to report that more people say that they have no religion at all. Approximately 30% of married couples did not have a religious ceremony and about 27% said they did not want a religious funeral.
Increasingly, people feel the need to decide between accepting and becoming a Biblical literalist or, embracing the verifiable realities about the world in which they live. This creates a state of cognitive dissonance that becomes intolerable for most people. Accepting a Bible filled with pre-modern, unacceptable notions, and even noxious declarations is a turnoff to people in an educated culture. Believing in an indefinable, punitive, and capricious God, as promoted in religion, is a difficult and repulsive pill for most people to swallow.
In A Believable Bible, you are provided with a guidebook for understanding and making sense of the book of faith that is the basic document of the Christian faith in America. You will be surprised to discover that the Bible may not be what you have been led to believe. Incorporating the best of recent biblical scholarship and psychological insight, Walter Kania, Ph.D., takes you on a fascinating journey of discovery and new truth, much as he did in his prior book, Healthy Religion.
