Reviews

Undeniably thought-provoking * Christopher Hart, Sunday Times *
Truly ... a good book, full of sage counsel, wise advice and comfort for the sorrowing * Richard Holloway, Observer *
There is an immense depth of human wisdom on display here, and five minutes with any passage will have you contemplating all day * Independent on Sunday *
There are many sentences, thoughts and sentiments in The Good Book that are illuminating, life-enhancing and revelatory on a personal level * Glasgow Herald *
I am glad he put this book together and it will occupy a valuable place in my library as a source for inspiration and wisdom. **** * Terry Waite, Sunday Express *
Grayling is ... a skilled writer of prose ... most impressively [he] demonstrates mastery of Greek history and culture in Histories and Acts * Rabbi Ariel Abel, Jewish News *
Professor Grayling himself neatly exemplifies the values of calm rationality which are at the heart of Stoicism, and which influenced early Christian thought * Church Times *
