They tell you not to start at the beginning as absurdity, genocide, cruelty and injustice would put you right off it!

The Bible tells different parts of Judeo-Christian history and also includes some poetry and allegory and all sorts of things. It's not a "start to finish" book, it's a collection of "start-to-finish" books... More
