Understanding the Bible by John A. Buehrens
Book DescriptionUnderstanding the Bible is designed to help empower seekers, nonbelievers, and those of a liberal outlook to reclaim the Bible from literalists. In making accessible the best contemporary historical, literary, political, and feminist readings of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, it encourages all who would find in the biblical heritage an ally and not an enemy in the quest for a more just and humane world. Succinctly written, it can be used to stimulate group discussions and is an excellent introduction to the Judeo-Christian tradition for those of other faiths.

For over a generation now, conservative religion has had a monopoly in the United States. Or so our politics and the popular press have told us. Both have a tendency to polarize: religion=conservative versus liberal=secular individualist. But this view is simplistic and one-dimensional.
