Thirty-two prominent writers share the Bible passages most meaningful to them in this "Sunday School class you've been waiting for" (Garrison Keillor).

The Good Book, with an introduction by Adam Gopnik, is "a rich tapestry of reflections" (Publishers Weekly, starred review) by writers from many different faiths, including literary fiction writers (Colm Tóibín, Edwidge Danticat, Tobias Wolff, Rick Moody); bestselling nonfiction writers (A.J. Jacobs, Ian Frazier, Thomas Lynch); notable figures in the media (Charles McGrath, Cokie Roberts, Steven V. Roberts); and social activists (Al Sharpton, Kerry Kennedy). While these contributors are not primarily known as religious thinkers, they write intelligently and movingly about specific passages in the Bible that inform the way they live, think about past experiences, and see society today. Excerpted in The New Yorker and other prestigious publications, some pieces are close readings of specific passages, some are anecdotes from everyday life, and all will inspire, provoke, or illuminate.

Showcasing some of the best-known and best-loved characters and stories from Genesis to Revelation, The Good Book is "often inspiring and always interesting" (Booklist, starred review). This beautiful, enlightening gift "really does justice to the richness and complexity of the texts and how they resonate in our lives" (Krista Tippett, host of NPR's On Being). "These writers raise questions that are age-old, yet utterly contemporary, pressing, thoughtful, eternal" (Edward Hirsch). "This collection has something for everyone who appreciates good writing" (Library Journal).
