The Big Book of Bible Bloopers: A Lighthearted Look at the Misquotes, Misconceptions, and Misunderstandings of the World's Bestselling Book
Much has been said and written about the Bible-but not everything has been accurate. Bestselling author Stephen Lang (more than 1.7 million books sold and author of "The Complete Book of Bible Trivia") has gathered misquotes, misconceptions, misuses, and more that have touched people's funny bones or made them groan in disbelief. In this fun collection, readers will be intrigued by "errors" that include: In 1852 a "cleaned-up" version of the Bible was published by a vegetarian. All references to violence, sex, and meat were taken out. The image of angels with harps doesn't appear in the Bible. It probably originated from John Milton's poem "Paradise Lost." Fidel Castro announced that "Christ chose the fishermen because he was a communist."
As readers are entertained by these fascinating facts, they'll discover many biblical truths and learn some of Christianity's history.
