    I use to read Michael Heiser’s Naked Bible. Some interesting stuff, but I found his comments rather rigid, with a good dose of ego, as if his interpretations are the only ones that make sense. Add comments about some ID “scientists” that make some good points, I migrated away from insanity.

    For further parallels between OT representations of “God” and those of high moral henotheistic gods of the ANE see my chapter, “The Cosmology of the Bible,” in this book: http://www.amazon.com/Christian-Delusion-Why-Faith-Fails/dp/1616141689/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1310843216&sr=8-1  Use Amazon’s “LOOK INSIDE” feature to read pages 116-118 where a lot of the parallels are concentrated. But there’s other parallels pointed out throughout the rest of the chapter whose pages might unfortunately be restricted viewing. Still, anyone with a free amazon.com account should be able to view those pages.
