HOW TO READ THE BIBLE

By Harvey Cox (Harper One $26.99)

How to read the bible? One could begin “In the beginning” straight through to “…even the world itself could not contain all the books that should be written.”  John 21-25. Many have found it harder than it seems.  Cox, considered by his contemporaries among our greatest theologians, makes even the most obscure biblical passages accessible to lay readers. He opens new insights to many familiar bible passages and brings to life other books that may have baffled many. 


The Relic Master

By Christopher Buckley (Simon and Schuster $26.95)

This book will either have you laughing out loud or crying “sacrilege” or both. “Dismas,” the fictional 16-century seller of “authentic” holy relics, is desperate to obtain for his most important buyer, the Shroud of Turin. When his artist friend Durer attempts to create a fake, it is soon found out, forcing the two to attempt stealing the real thing.
