Magazine Editor Thumps Bible: Good Book -Publishers Weekly

Magazine Editor Thumps Bible: Good Book - 2/26/2009 9:27:00 AM - Publishers Weekly: "David Plotz, Slate editor and author of The Genius Factory, decided he should finally really read his Bible. Happily for us, he kept notes: Good Book: The Bizarre, Hilarious, Disturbing, Marvelous, and Inspiring Things I Learned When I Read Every Single Word of the Bible (Harper, March; see starred review below).

RBL: Do you have a favorite book or part of the Bible?

David Plotz: My favorite parts tend to be where you have heroes who are skeptical, questioning and doubtful. But my favorite story of all is the book of Ruth. It is so beautiful and moving, like a Jane Austen novel or a Patsy Cline song."
