Reviews

"Highly entertaining." -- The Jerusalem Post
Highly entertaining. --The Jerusalem Post
"Like the Bible itself, Good Book contains multitudes--it is by turns thought-provoking, funny, enlightening and moving. In short, David Plotz's book easily lives up to its name. Trust me, Thou shalt enjoy."--A. J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically
"Plotz is a genius writer. He can mine Genesis for new insights--and play the book of Job for laughs. He's the perfect companion for a romp through the Bible: charmingly confessional, a deeply penetrating reader, and at complete ease relating ancient (often obscure) narratives to our modern condition."--Franklin Foer, author of How Soccer Explains the World
