Holy Bible

This timely collection of stories reminds us how deeply men’s images fill religious traditions worldwide. Dr. Walter Greason (Department of History, Monmouth University) and Jiba Molei Anderson created The Holy Bible: Dignity & Divinity to ask two fundamental questions:

How would familiar tales like the Garden of Eden and the Nativity differ if the women in the stories were the central characters?  

Can we understand women as being as divine as men, if we shift our perspectives on our religious values?  

The Holy Bible: Dignity & Divinity presents an important revelation about the universal power religion retains in the twenty-first century.  

Where commerce often takes center stage through a secular understanding of the holidays, these portraits remind readers that humility, piety, introspection, and integrity hold unique power to inspire a cynical world.

The Holy Bible: Dignity & Divinity is available now from Griot Enterprises.
