I just wish I had access to it other than purchasing it. There are several selections I would have seconded if I had free access (library or otherwise). I don't feel right voting/nominating something I know I won't be able to read.

Thanks Tom; hopefully it still might make it. I haven't read any books like this in a long while and it sounds very interesting.

I hope so, too. The authors, one of whom is a professor of archeology in Israel and the other of whom is a contributing editor to Archaeology Magazine, have the street cred to pull this one off nicely. It's been my experience with such works that they rarely present anything that's unknown to scholars and serious students of the Bible, but nonetheless contain fascinating information that surprisingly—even in this day of Biblical saturation in the media—remains virtually unknown by not only the rank-and-file members of churches, synagogues, and mosques, but by the general public as well.

I'll nominate John Wayne: The Life and Legend by Scott Eyman.

From Amazon:

Quote:
John Wayne was one of Hollywood’s most famous and most successful actors, but he was more than that. He became a symbol of America itself. He epitomized the Western film, which for many people epitomized America. ...

In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that there's a delay on the shipping date on one of the books I nominated, Darwin's Dangerous Idea: Evolution and the Meanins of Life by Daniel Bennett. Now it appears from an email I got today that it won't be arriving until July 8, which is cutting things a bit close the date of our discussion for a book of this size and type.

Hello from Amazon.com,

We're writing because an unexpected delay has occurred in delivering the Kindle version of the book listed below:

We'll keep your pre-order open on your account and deliver the title to your Kindle as soon as the publisher releases the digital version.

Too many on the wait list. We'd never get it in time to be able to read it.

Unless there are any more nominations between now and midnight EST it looks as though they'll only be six nominations this month, but those six represent a good mix of choices: three on science, two on recent history, and one on Biblical history from the perspective of archeology and higher criticism.

Excellent set of nominations, even if only six - a tough choice.
