The Bible — the article’s up!

The producers of The Bible had to squish thousands of years of sacred literature down to ten hours (though it was more like seven, once you bracket off the commercial breaks). Now I have managed to squish the 15,000 words or so that I wrote about the series here at this blog down to about 2,000 words for a web-exclusive article at Books & Culture, which went online today. I cover a lot of the same points that I made in my blog posts, but I also make note of a few things that I didn’t talk about here. Check it out.
