Product description

Review

'Loveday intelligently and successfully assesses the Bible in ways that are accessible and useful for those with open, inquiring minds.' - Publishers Weekly.
'A hymn to an irrepressible longing in the human spirit for higher meaning ... Loveday writes with a clarity that is little short of gripping.' - Matthew Parris, Spectator
