The women watched as the Son of God writhed in agony. Surely,
this was the end. No. This was the beginning ... the beginning of
the journey from the Cross to the Church. " Graziano] moves on to
the development of the Gospels and how the social, political and
theological interests of the early church founders influenced what
became part of the biblical canon. Graziano's book is thoughtful
and measured, willing to uncouple the Bible from the assertion that
it is the word of God. However, although the book's lack of an
agenda makes it broad-minded and reasonable, readers may find it
difficult to draw specific conclusions about its content. It seems
to be an effort to introduce historical study of the Bible to
laypeople; as such, the text is clear, light and readable... The
author does shed light on many intriguing aspects of biblical
history, but overall, the book serves best as a concise
introduction for newcomers. That said, more critical readers may be
able to use the book as a jumping-off point for their own
investigations." -Kirkus Reviews
