Pomegranate Gospel offers both humorous and heartfelt commentary through a variety of styles and forms-memoirs, literary analysis, epistles, narratives, engagements with the visual arts-that keep the reader a little off-balance to open a new awareness of the Bible's secular richness. Many obstacles prevent us from approaching the Bible as literary text, yet when these are removed, we find a surprising, hilarious, and deeply meaningful book.

Pomegranate Gospel is a gift to those of us who open the Bible every week to prepare a sermon orget ready for a Bible Study class. Hisunfiltered insights into the literary dimensions of the biblical stories andcharacters bring them to life with such energy, wit, and passion that we findourselves challenged to discover anew what it means to seek "peace, love, andunderstanding." Reverend Michael H. Carrier, Pastor, Congregational Christian Church ofFranklin, New Hampshire. ReadingPomegranate Gospel is a bit like yourbeing told that a specific Rorschach ink blot is a prophet juggling an hourglass: once the book's inspired ideas are implanted, you'll have trouble seeingthe Bible any other way; in fact, you'll wonder how traditional religious establishmentsgot away with their interpretations for so long, considering Pomegranate is a hell of a lot more funand ultimately more satisfying.

Hoffmanoffers a fresh, candid, often humorous, at times controversial, interpretationof the Bible. Most Bible films have a holy aura, which can be offensive andunrealistic. Hoffman clearly avoids that sin.
