Read full description of the books:



For those who've never read the Bible, and for those who've read it too much.

Rob Lacey's "dangerously real" retelling of Scripture vividly demonstrates that the Bible is packed full of stories/poems/images that resonate with the big issues of today. This fresh paraphrase with running commentary brings the text alive: Bible stories are retold as mini-blockbusters; psalms as song lyrics; epistles as emails; Revelation as a virtual reality.

Out with stale religious terms, heres a "Bible" that talks todays language -- gritty, earthy, witty. Enough of starting at Genesis with good intentions but getting lost in Leviticus. Lacey succeeds in revitalizing a classic work by focusing on the big picture: fast-forwards through the "slow-moving" bits with pace, passion and energy to make the Bible a page-turner again.

What's more, Lacey's award-winning tour de force was created during a remarkable personal journey through terminal cancer: the stuff the Bible stories are made of. This life-experience injects Lacey's take on Scripture with authenticity and authority -- resonating with Bible characters who also wrestled with the big questions.

Purist alert: This is not THE Bible (capital B) ... but it might just get you reaching for one.
