A Bible for the Liberal
Open Road Media, 2015 M05 26 - 368 páginas
This Bible is not a new book. It is, rather, a selection of the principles of ethics, taken from all biblical literature, including the HebrewBooks of Wisdom and TheApocrypha, without the usual mythological and ritualistic framework.
Liberals of our time will find in this selection the essence of true Judaism and Christianity. The purpose of this anthology is to help those with critical, with even prejudicial eyes, to get a view of the majestic panorama that unfolds in the writings of the great Hebrew and Christian Men of God.
The believer, as well as the non-believer, will be able to find in this book the essential ethics of the great law-givers and prophets of biblical times.
