Review 1 for Making Sense of Bible Difficulties: Clear and Concise Answers from Genesis to Revelation
You can't interpret the Bible 100% literally.

I finished reading "Making Sense of Bible Difficulties" by Norman Geisler and Thomas Howe. However, I was somewhat disappointed in the book. Geisler tried really hard to interpret the entire Bible literally when it is really impossible to do that. The Bible is full of figures of speech. When he tries to interpret the Bible literally, his explainations sound a little ridiculous. For example, his Dispensalationalist position on the role of 21st Century Israel. His book can easily alienate many Muslims who desperately want to seek the truth. I do not recommend a non-believing Muslim to read this book. The Bible is an autobiography on Jesus. It should point of Jesus, not to a nation like 21st Century Israel. What's happening in the 21st Century Israel has no relevance with the prophecy in the Bible. When the Bible talks about the nation of Israel, it really talked about the Universal Protestant Christian Church.
