Asimov pulls information from all kinds of sources to give a rich overview of historical events in the Bible and puts them in world context. For example, he speaks about Anthony and Cleopatra's possible influence on Saul of Tarsus. It's a must-read for anyone that loves a "Six Degrees of Separation" or "Circles"-type of book.
Incredibly entertaining for bible lovers, too.
