The Bible you currently read is the abridged version. Some holy writings were left out for political or theological reasons, others simply because of the physical restrictions of ancient book - making technology. At times, the compilers of the Bible skipped information that they assumed everyone knew. Some passages were even left out by accident. In this book, Joel Hoffman explains that: The Book of Genesis tells you about Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, but not what happens to them after they get kicked out; The Bible presents Abraham, the father of monotheism, but doesn't explain how he came to reject idolatry; Today's Bible contains only 150 Psalms, but there used to be more; Christians know they have the Book of Revelation in the New Testament, but Jews had a similar book that told a different story of what eventually happens to the Earth. The Bible's Cutting Room Floor introduces these and other fascinating writings that offer different answers to the most fundamental and universal questions people ask about their lives. An impressive blend of history, linguistics, and religious scholarship, this book reveals what's missing from your Bible, who left it out, and why it is so important.
