Very interesting take on how the bible came to be. This author takes common bible stories from the first 5 books, "The 5 Scrolls" and campares them side by side with very ancient Egyptian Mythology, in which you can see there are few differences other than making the stories Monotheistic as opposed to Polytheistic. he does not write in a way to offend or sway anyways beliefs, he just puts in the facts adding his historical research as well to state how certain things could or could not happen. If you are interested in Religon & Philosophy studies this is a great book to add to you collection.

Most of it was in the front part (e.g. Genesis). I think 101 is an absurdly low number if they had wanted to do the whole bible. Maybe this is just a safe stopping point for literalists.
