Tim Callahan’s main thesis was that, rather than being a divinely inspired book of inerrant material given to humankind by a single God to a single people living at one time in history, the Bible is a collection of myths and stories handed down from many ancient civilizations and strung together with deletions, insertions and redactions to tell politically and culturally biased mythic tales.
