Floyd Hale's answers to Bible questions are not only edifying but delightful. Hale has a common touch that communicates easily with his audience. I also appreciate his including the occasional letter to the editor which lambastes him for some point of view. I think this book makes a real contribution to the understanding of our Holy Scriptures.

Floyd Hale's thorough and competent use of contemporary biblical studies and historical criticism has often landed him in hot water with readers of a more conservative and fundamentalist persuasion here in America's Bible belt. The combination of unorthodox theology and folksy style is provocative and insightful. In the emotional heat of reaction, some of his readers miss the subtle humor enjoyed by others. The wit and wisdom of these articles are mixed with uncommon courage. Not many pastors with Floyd's knowledge of the Bible are willing to risk the pain associated with sharing it in a public forum.

This collection of Floyd Hale's newspaper columns - 'The Bible Says' - should prove refreshing and stimulating, not to mention informative, to just about everybody.
