Read it slowly and let it sink in; then read it again.
This book could make you mad, it will surely make you laugh, and it could open your eyes to facts you never knew. You will definitely learn something from it regardless of your political or religious persuasion.
It is obvious that Edwin Kagin knows the Bible inside and out. He also has a dedicated understanding of our democracy and where it could lead.
Do yourself a favor and open your mind up to Mr. Kagin's brillant and eloquent works and become a more enlighted person for it. I cannot recommend it enough.
I just finished your book.
You make me laugh. I applaud your style. Your Humor defuses and dilutes. Your Humor allows views from perspectives outside ones own. Rationale thought is so refreshing after being inundated in a sea of humanity permeated with fantasy and myth. You are one of the five percent out of six point six billion and counting. You are not arrogant or intolerant. You just state the FACTS in a clear logical way. I just wish all humans could read and understand your book NOW without dogmatic filters. Perhaps, the world would suddenly be a better place. The poetry provokes thought and delights ones inner child. Your facts are right on. Your research was obviously well done. I am just sick of being tolerant and respecting views that are considered mainstream. Religion is one of the worst, most dangerous inventions of mankind. Those mainstream views and their dogmatic followers are injuring me and mine as well as the whole of our little speck of dust called earth. The entire ocean planet, the entire biosphere is near a major equilibrium disruption. We are the lucky generation of MAN to witness the `fruits' of the industrial age. Our fragile world economy is based on stability. Stability is about to evaporate in a `quantum flip'. The beautiful positive utopian `Star Trek' dreams of a brilliant hopeful future just simply do not appear to be a possible extrapolation of the path our world is on. Gee...I hope an awakening can happen and it is not too late for rationale solutions. Perhaps your book will help. I will try to get 10 of my friends to read it.
The writing is comparable to H. L. Mencken's, but not as mean. It is unique, and the whole work is marvelous.
This book should touch everyone who touches it. I have difficulty understanding otherwise intelligent people's believing in something that cannot be proven and makes no sense, and they may have difficulty understanding Kagin. But they should try. He makes sense.
