I haven't read it yet but it sounds intriguing and it's on my reading list.

The Invention of God by Thomas Romer

Here's an article about the author and the subject in Haaretz.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I read The Bible Unearthed a few years back, which goes over the history of what archaeology has revealed about the Old Testament. Surprisingly, not everything in the Old Testament matches the archaeological record.

"Surprisingly" was intended to be tongue-in-cheek. The book shows that the Old Testament is categorically inaccurate at nearly every turn. I fear I've sullied the reputation of The Bible Unearthed for all-time now with my failed book review. Drinking Beverage
