“Read the Bible? How novel!

What would I find there?” History – the most ancient, most authentic, most awe inspiring. Stories of love i.e. clean, non-sexual friendships between people of both sexes, and the husband/wife sexual stories (and sadly also fornication and adultery). Poetry – thousands of lines of imagery. Culture – a cultural gold mine with terms, traditions, and technicalities, etc. Miracles – how dull life must be for those who refuse to believe them. Wise sayings “by-the-ton” and Biographies – whole or a bio in one instance only.
