In 2006 I began following the blog of David Plotz, a writer for Slate.com, as he explored the Bible from his point of view as "an ignoramus" (his words) . It now appears that Plotz has written a book based on that experience.
I heard about the book through a personal email he sent out to everyone who had responded in the comments section of his blog on Slate.com. Given that the email had such a personal tone to it, I decided to respond to a few questions that Plotz had not been able to resolve in his first read-through of the Bible. I'm posting the questions and answers here in case they're helpful to anyone else.
