In a recent study reported by the Associated Press, the American Religious Identification Survey concluded 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 30o% of married couples did not have a religious ceremony. About 27% of those polled said that they did not want a religious funeral. Why is this true? Increasingly, people feel the need to make a decision. They must decide between, accepting and becoming a Biblical literalist or, embracing the known, verifiable realities about the world in which they live. This choice is confusing, and it creates a state of cognitive dissonance that becomes intolerable for most people. Having to accept a Bible that is unbelievable, that is filled with pre-modern, unacceptable notions, and even noxious declarations, is a turnoff to people in an educated culture. Having to believe 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, and that is responsible for 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, Dr. Kania takes you on a fascinating journey of discovery and new truth, much as he did in his prior book, "Healthy Religion."
