We at Holeybooks.com make use of a variety of sources, sometimes noting them in the text, and other times just using them when we compose posts. If you like the site and are interested in following up in certain areas, we’ve compiled a list of (readable) books that may be helpful for someone getting into studying this stuff. As we go along, we’ll inevitably add to this list (since we make use of new secondary texts all the time). As for Bibles, we cite to a variety here, but for the most part we like the NIV and NRSV. Specifically, The New Oxford Annotated Bible with Apocrypha (NRSV).
So as for that other reading:
- How to Read the Bible, by James Kugel
- The Origin of Satan, by Elaine Pagels
- The History of God, by Karen Armstrong
- From Jesus to Christianity, by L. Michael White
- The Evolution of God, Robert Wright
