Think you know what's in the bible?, Oct. 2 2010
Think again. Werleman does a chapter by chapter reading of the bible in its entirety, adding humourous observation and also pointing out the horrors, inconsistencies, and ridiculous contradictions that run throughout. I thought I knew quite a bit about the bible from Sunday School and attending church when I was young, so I was astonished to see what is actually written, and how truly vile the god of the bible is. It is a very important book that people should read. The bible and it's offshoot religions play such an important part in the world of today - it is vital that we should actually understand what is written in it. You will realize how much nonsense is spouted by men proclaiming to speak for god. Any negatives? Personally I would have liked it to be a harsher indictment of the bible. But I think the lighter tone will make it more appealing to people of all religious belief levels. I thoroughly recommend this book.
