From the Back Cover:

Think the Bible is boring?

Think again.

You’ll find the most amazing things in the Bible. You’ll find odd and shocking things. You’ll find truly curious things. And you’ll read about many of them in this book.

            Here, in dozens of easy-reading (and often humorous!) chapters, you’ll find details on the strange and obscure people and events of scripture, as well as a fresh and fascinating take on some more familiar stories:

 

  • The mysterious death of Judas Iscariot
  • A man with 700 wives
  • The Bible’s other Noah
  • UFO files
  • God’s sense of humor
  • The “water of jealousy”
  • A killer sermon—literally speaking
  • The ark of the covenant’s location
  • Bad apples on Jesus’ family tree
  • And 50 more

     

    Featuring plenty of intriguing sidebars, a full subject index, and an inviting design with scores of full-color images, Bible Curiosities will intrigue as it informs.

                If you’ve ever thought the Bible was boring, think again.
