The Bible is simultaneously complex and magnetic—riddled with accounts that confound us and stories that compel us. Epic poetry flows from the same pages upon which the Leviathan swims, the Apostles minister to the poor, and a bleeding woman touches the cloak of God. Whether you poured over the Psalms every night before bedtime prayers or are just coming to the text in adulthood, all Christians must contend with the mysterious miracle that is the Word of God. Bestselling author Rachel Held Evans challenges doubt with a search, prodding the depths of the poetry, parables, and epistles of the Bible to read life in its pages and prove that the Word is more than a religious text—it’s a living experience.
