Summary
The Bible is full of not-so-precious moments, from murder and mayhem, to sex and slavery. Now, an incredible cast of contributors tackles the parts of the Bible that most excite, frustrate, or comfort, like: 1.What the heck is the book of Revelation really about? (The answer will surprise you.), 2.How do we come to grips with the Bible's troubling (or seemingly troubling) passages about the role of women?, 3.Why did the artist of the oldest known picture of Jesus intentionally paint him with a wonky eye--and what does it tell us about beauty? DISQUIET TIME was written by and for Bible-loving Christians, agnostics, skeptics, none-of-the-aboves, and people who aren't afraid to dig deep spiritually, ask hard questions, and have some fun along the way

An incredible cast of contributors tackles the parts of the Bible that most excite, comfort, frustrate, or soothe
