Description

Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated? Why do our friends and neighbors - and sometimes we ourselves - dismiss the Bible as irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things? This explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today’s issues, but completely consistent with rational thought.

Do you think the Bible permitted the trans-Atlantic slave trade? You won’t after reading this book.

Do you struggle to love your parents? If you do, you need this book.

Do you doubt the existence of God because belief in God is “irrational?” This book will give you reason after reason to rethink your doubts.

The title of this commentary is, “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. As Prager says, “If something I write does not make rational sense, I have not done my job.”

The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager’s forty years of teaching the Bible to people of every faith, and no faith. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world and to your life.

His goal: to change your mind - and then change your life.

Audible was a great experience.

The audible format was a great way to bring this to life. The historical background and essays really tie everything together. Dennis does a great job quenching my thirst for what has typically been a dry read. I can’t wait for the next book.

Never learned or enjoyed the Bible this much

It was very enlightening learning about exodus in such a rational and facts based way.

largely fallacious, but works to a good end

I dropped my skepticism and biases to listen to this book and saw the old text in a new light. The scholarly review applied by Dennis to each verse (and at times a scholarly review down to a single word) provided commentary that was able to answer deep, troubling philosophical questions left unanswered by parents and pastors. Had I known about this book just 8 years prior, I might've been "saved".

Anyway, the main idea is that if God exists and the Bible (and therefore the book of Exodus) is literally true (I think this detail is actually irrelevant) Dennis through the narrator will try his very best to convince you that God is fair and just.

However, another less-than-convinced person might say: "The Rational Bible"is an ill-suited title to what is actually going on here, the title ought to be "Rationalizing the Bible". There is some truth to this viewpoint, but whether you are more like the former or latter is dependent on whether or not you have faith that if such a god exists, then that god also wants what is good for humanity, or at least his followers.

Deeper understanding of God.

I really enjoyed getting in the back story to how God set up his covenant with the Hebrews. What I really took away was how God was trying to set himself apart from the small G gods that have been worship throughout history. To get people to worship the creator instead of the creation. As we in the west have become more secular weare once again worshipping the gods of the past. Thanks for writing such an interesting look at what God wants from us individually and as a society.

Great for those new to studying the Bible

Trying to read the Bible on my own, especially the Old Testament, was always overwhelming. Understanding some of the language and references can be really difficult. However, Prager's commentary, which was interwoven with the Bible verses, made the stories understandable and enjoyable. I can't wait for his next book on Genesis!

A great book.

This is a great book either read or listened to.
The narrator had a very good voice to listen to. It makes me want to read /listen to the other books when they come available.

Relatable teaching

I love how Dennis Prager brings the word of God through the book of Exodus to life and makes it relatable to the world today and my place in it.
