The Bible can be hazardous to one's health if it is read with faulty expectations. Writing with insight, compassion, and wit, Russell Pregeant shows that reading the Bible "without interpretation" is impossible; the right question is which assumptions are most appropriate to the Bible and our reasons for taking it up.
