While this book is definitely challenging to write, it takes a few interpretive liberties, forcing the listener to accept its premise even if you disagree, such as claiming the Jewish monotheistic belief in a God accepted a reality of other gods simply because there are discussions of "other gods" in the OT. Those references are clearly other people treating objects as gods or believing there is a god of the sea etc.... It doesn't mean the God of the OT believes there are also other gods. In any case it has some good clarifications of events, a lot of extra biblical evidences of what was written in the OT which are helpful. The only other thing is it's claim certain events have no archeological evidence when there are some already published. Anyways overall good book.
It is indeed a very short but solid introduction the bible. It offers a scholarly approach and despite not being able to cover everything does gives approach insightful to important segments of the Old Testament.
