Book Description

Continuing on the path of Biblical destruction, we focus our attention now on that zombie from Israel with the Birkenstock sandals and the physique of an Olympic swimmer. Join me as I systematically deconstruct God's tenuous grasp on morals, ethics, and parenthood.

Are you under the impression that Jesus was a loving figure, who cherished all mankind and sought to save each and every one of us from hellfire? Wrong! Jesus was an arrogant bastard child who traveled town to town, mocking non-believers and dismissing family members in an attempt to save a handful of the people he happened to be around at the moment.

Think you know the story of Jesus? You don't. But you can. Come on in and sit down for a spell. Free punch and pie.

5.0 out of 5 stars Waiting for Jesus May 9, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After being our companion in our stroll through the carnage perpetrated by YHWH in the old testament, Mr Shuty kindly volunteers to explore the nonsense of the new testament. Here, Jesus (a fictional character), speaks in riddles, performs some magic tricks, dies (for our sins, apparently), comes back to life a couple of days later and is beamed up into space, after promising to return pretty soon. It should be noted that some people are still waiting for him, even though he is about 2000 years too late by now. Some people are indeed very patient and exceedingly tolerant of unpunctuality, it seems.

Mr Shuty shows us that Jesus, on the other hand, is not very tolerant: he repeats over and over that those who fail to suck up to him will suffer eternal torment and their cities will be burned to the ground. Curiously, he is considered an example of love, righteousness, and humility by many. Quite a mystery, really.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for everybody May 30, 2013
By nikos
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The author fully disproves the omnibenevolent, omniscient, omnipotent etc. God ruling the world. He's an andry and jealous God, seeking revenge, and killing people because they lack to show the due respect to Him. He also proves that all those books, representing the Old Testament could not be written by any wise creature, residing in the Heavens, but by regular men. Strongly recommended to both believers, agnostics and atheists.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic January 13, 2013

Brian Shuty combines a razor sharp wit with a God-like (pun intended) knowledge of the Bible and religion in general. The best book I've read since The God Delusion.

This review is similar to the one I wrote for the companion book on the Old Testament, written by the same author. This book should be read after the OT one.
Even if you believe every word of the Bible is true, you probably have (unconsciously) ignored most of the words and stories that make you uncomfortable. In this book, your attention is drawn to the parts of the NT that are contradictory or obviously historically erroneous. Certain theological issues that have plagued Christianity for millennia are also highlighted. The author's atheistic attitude comes through at times with uncomfortable stridency. His use of crude street language often gets in the way of making his points. Nevertheless, he does call your attention to the parts of the Bible that make a sincere commitment to a Christian lifestyle the difficult challenge that it must be. The author essentially dares you to REALLY read the Bible, and THINK about what you are reading. The author has done so, several times, from cover to cover.

5.0 out of 5 stars I have read better zombie fiction before, to be honest. January 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Now, normally I am all for a good zombie story. I have all the issues of The Walking Dead, I have a copy of the Zombie Survival Guide, and I listen to a zombie radio drama. But this zombie story was probably one of the worst. If you were looking for some brain eating action, you are looking in the wrong place.

I didn't appreciate how the original authors (not the one doing the critique) felt that they had to repeat the same story to me four times. I mean, they were all pretty discrepant, but you could tell they were all copying off one another, and just changing parts so that they wouldn't get caught in a primitive plagiarism checker. They needn't have worried though, cause apparently nobody has really caught on to this yet.

Then, after sitting through the same boring story 4 times, I find out that the main character dies! Every time! They had four tries to figure out a way for him not to die, but no, each time they fell into the same traps, and the guy ends up dead, but not really cause he comes back alive. If there is one person that you don't want to have end up a zombie, it is the main character.

The only thing that saved this weird mix of historical and zombie fiction was the critique. At least there was lots of humorous bits to take your mind off of the weird, repetitive story. (Plus, get this, at the end, there is this part about a dude on a huge acid trip talking about whores, and dragons, and trumpets, and seals. Actually this part is the best because every person who ever died comes back alive. Scary!)

If you are looking to write some zombie fiction, then I recommend this book to help you along. You will find that mistakes are pointed out, so that you can avoid them in your work.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Atheist's Critique of the Bible, OH MY! July 30, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I liked the Author's criticism of the New Testament because the passages and verses that he highlights are not the one's that are cherry picked by Christians. He is especially good on the apostle Paul, and the letters Paul wrote to the different churches. Paul's views of women, slavery, Jews, and none Christians are mostly ignored or deliberately withheld by the Christian churches. The author has a good sense of humor and uses very blunt and direct language. I recommend this book to anyone who has read the New Testament in the Bible.
