The Bible consists of 66 books and letters written by 40+ different authors (farmers, fishermen, tent-makers, shepherds etc). Because of this many believe that it is old and outdated; mythical; morally disconnected; contradictory and inconsistent; culturally specific even though it spanned political, cultural and economic climates. It took over 1500 years time span to write and was penned in 21 countries on three different continents.
