Brandon O'Brien and Randy Richards shed light on the ways that Western readers often misunderstand the cultural dynamics of the Bible. The identify nine areas where commonplaces of modern Western thought diverge with the text. In bringing these to the readers' attention, the authors ask us to reconsider long-held opinions about our most beloved book. The book is in three parts that explore cultural issues above the surface, just below the surface, and deep below the surface. The conclusion considers how we can get rid of our cultural blinders.
