Book Description

The complete text of Thomas Jefferson's original cut-and-paste version of the Gospels, portraying Jesus as a wise but strictly human teacher, deliberately omitting what Jefferson called the "dross": the virgin birth, the miracles, the resurrection, etc.

When Jefferson wrote, Christianity was virtually the only show in town. Today, Americans embrace a wide variety of belief -- and the lack thereof. "A Jefferson Bible for the Twenty-first Century" lists candidates for "best" and "worst" excerpts from a variety of scriptures, including the Hebrew Bible, the Qur'an, the Bhagavadgita, Buddhist sutras, and the Book of Mormon, and invites readers' opinions on the selections.

I thought that although the religious texts were tough to read, this book is well-organized and effective. Jefferson's founding-father reputation hopefully cracks open the door of the normally closed-minded devout, then the Bible's good/bad exposes them to the horrors and contradictions they never knew or considered. Next, the utter goofiness of all religions is driven home by the good/bad, contradictory and history-bound nature of their texts. Finally, the modern and moral Humanist philosophy provides an obviously, dramatically superior guide to life.

The bible is nothing more than a book written by men to scare people into submission. It is crap no matter how you move the words around. Period!
