Hamilton's book is in two sections, the first describing the origins and contents of the Bible (including the differences in the Orthodox and Catholic Bibles), expounding the human-authorship viewpoint. The second directly answers several common questions about controversial topics, mostly pertaining to Mosaic law, but also homosexuality, feminism, and Revelations. Hamilton is a Methodist and certainly a progressive, and presents his point of view against biblical literalism. I believe this is a valuable read for any American wanting to make more sense of Christianity, regardless of faith.
