In Great Controversies of the Bible, Robert Ramia-Enriquez presents a serious, non-religious analysis of the Bible, with scientific and historical references regarding inconsistencies and contradictions. He suggests a parallelism between ancient cultures and those involved in the Bible, by creating the concept of a Jewish-Christian mythology. Although as a child Ramia-Enriquez was brought up in the Catholic faith and was a fervent believer, over the years he realized that the rites of worship were redundant and meaningless. They did not involve the faithful and were not always based on historical truth. He later experienced an inner religious crisis after studying the Papacy, the Inquisition, and above all the social injustice and horror wrought upon mankind by wars inspired by religions promising invincibility to some and havoc and destruction to others. Robert Ramia-Enriquez believes that faith is a highly personal commitment and that the possible existence of a higher being is nothing more than just a notion. He therefore does not accept that any person can act as the delegate of a higher being or exercise the duty of representing God among others. Great Controversies of the Bible examines in great detail the myths, legends, and contradictions of the Bible.
