A layman's guide to a 150 years of research into the history presented in the Bible. I explore the religion of ancient Israel, and the development of Christianity through to the death of Paul. I discuss every single book in every Bible (there are more than you think!) Lightly garnished with a dash of drollery, a soupcon of scrutiny, and not one ounce of objectivity. Not one ounce! Episodes are released every third Sunday.

Clear and fun account of the Bible and its history

Garry does a wonderful job of exploring the history in the Bible is enough depththat you know the stories, but not so detailed that it becomes boring. He has a fun presenting style and a wonderful accent to go with it.

Does what it says on the label

All the history of all the bibles. This is a good podcast if you want to know what is the actual story of the bible but don't want to read all the bible. The good thing about this podcast is that it both tells you the story of the bible but also gives you some brief insights into how academics or theologians think about these stories. This is not a religious podcast. Think of it more as a podcast that discusses the bible as a book, rather than the word of god. It discusses who and when the books might have been written and how the stories fit in to the historical contexts. It is delivered with a lovely clear tone and is very accessible.

A cheerful, thoughtful and well presented review of the Bible.

A splendid review and history of the Bible peppered with frequent asides exploring the languages, history, economics of the Middle East which help to clarify and place this book in its historical context.

There is not a dull episode in this well presented and lively series. It is a must listen for anyone with an interest in the Bible.
