"I just forwarded to friends Balboa's Introduction to your 2nd Edition. Actually Don, I really think this 2nd Edition could not be more timely. I sincerely think there are more people receptive to opening their minds about their programming of religion or the Bible than ever before. It appears it takes humans a long time to change - you timed this perfectly! Answering questions about the Bible that many have had but were afraid to ask could really help open the door wider to the changes we desperately need. So you are part of the change! Congratulations for that service to this planet…." Pat W., (North Carolina)
"This website is a great tribute to Don's spiritual work. He is the real deal. He is as authentic in person as he is in his writing. His books and his on-going message have always been very helpful to me in my spiritual journey. Don is a mentor to many, so I'm excited he is getting an opportunity to share his wisdom with more people." Barbara M. (Tennessee)

Why Is It Important To Understand The Bible?

This book is for those who want to be true to the spirit of the Christ and want to use the Bible as a guide to their spiritual growth rather than as a literal instruction manual for evaluating and judging external behavior – especially the behavior of others. Spirituality is always an inside job and is always gentle, kind, understanding and accepting – of others and of self.

It is just as unbalanced for a metaphysician, humanist or agnostic to believe the Bible is simply metaphorical – as it is for a Christian to believe each word must be interpreted literally. Clear spiritual thinking requires an understanding of what the Bible is – and isn’t. While O’Dell performs a scholarly work explaining facts, politics and beliefs that forged the evolution of the Bible, his experiential faith in the sacredness of the presence of the Holy Spirit imbues this book with authentic humanness. Readers will understand that being a Christian requires more than attaching oneself to a congregation and believing the Bible literally.

Knowing God is the active pursuit of experiential faith.

The fruit of this book is the presentation of biblical facts, which are sewn together in the recognition that the Kingdom of God is available right now for you: Having experiences where others see God in you; Gifting your life with experiences of seeing God in all others; and Experiencing Spirit’s daily guidance as you live your life.
