It is the last book in the Bible, probably the most interpreted, and certainly the most controversial.

The New Testament Book of Revelation is a mystery, as even the most learned Bible scholars disagree on the meanings of all the symbols, imagery, and prophecy.

Now Princeton University religious scholar Elaine Pagels takes on the task of trying to explain the Book of Revelation, in its historical context as well as in terms of what it says to people of faith. And her revelations may be startling, whether you are a person of faith or not.

Her book is called “Revelations.”

Many people follow Biblical rules, starting with the basics, the Ten Commandments. But let’s face it, even the most pious among us is unlikely to be able to live by ALL the rules in the Bible. But A.J. Jacobs — whom last we met after he had read the entire encyclopedia, from A to Z — decided to give the Bible laws a try.

For one full year, he would do exactly what the Bible said to do. His chronicle of that effort is called “The Year of Living Biblically.”

The Apostle Paul may be one of the most misunderstood figures in the Bible’s New Testament. He has certainly been controversial, called, at various times, anti-Semitic, a misogynist, even a tool of Satan.

Now Pulitzer Prize winning author Garry Wills comes to Paul’s defense, with a fresh reading of his letters and some historical perspective. Wills’ book is called “What Paul Meant.”
