Editorial Reviews

Review

"His acid wit and delightfully humorous analysis of Biblical testament will have your neck cramping from continuously nodding in agreement. He meticulously scrutinises the Bible, chapter by thrilling chapter, articulating the many contradictions and indeed misconceptions that the religious conveniently overlook." --Rusty Lime, November 16, 2009

"This book absolutely crucifies the argument for a benevolent creator. What's more, it uses the creationist's most-cited source to do it." --Daily Atheist, November 02, 2009

From the Publisher

We, at Lean Marketing Press, have never been prouder to release a new book as we are with 'God Hates You. Hate Him Back'. There have been countless number of analysis' of the Bible but none as entertaining as this, certainly in our opinion. Even if you are a God believer, Jew or Christian, this is a book you will use as a reference in your own personal theological debates.

'God Hates You. Hate Him Back' really does put the fun back into the Bible.

The author, C.J. Werleman, have done a good job by analyzing the Bible chapter by chapter.

THIS book is my new bible, and I will reference it in my militant atheist arguments against creationists and their idiocy!
CL
`God Hates You, Hate Him Back' is way, way funnier than the Bible, so, if you can only pick up one, pick up GHYHHB!

The biggest problem with the bible is that it is so God Damned boring! Not even the followers of the bible read the bible. In a day and age where literalistic interpretation of the bible has spawned a race of Super-Christians known as Baptists, Evangelicals and Creationists one great man aims to set the world straight on all things biblical.

For whatever reason, followers of the Abrahamic religions (Islam, Judaism and Christianity and all of their offshoots) have developed some ludicrous delusions that God is great, God is good, all loving, all caring and all powerful. The reality, as CJ Werleman has discovered through his meticulous analysis of the bible, is that all that god is is an uncaring, petty, jealous and violent. He's more like an all powerful bitchy teen than a wise omnipotent being.

His acid wit and delightfully humorous analysis of Biblical testament will have your neck cramping from continuously nodding in agreement. He meticulously scrutinises the Bible, chapter by thrilling chapter, articulating the many contradictions and indeed misconceptions that the religious conveniently overlook.

Authors and sources such as Carl Sagan, Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, Christopher Hitchens, Daniel Dennett and alike are brilliant if you've got a mind for science and it is safe to say that few fundamentalist/evangelical/creationist Christians do. As such using their methodical logic to logically disprove something that is utterly illogical, i.e. the Bible, is pointless. This book allows you to take a new, fresh and utterly hilarious look at one of history's most revered works. It makes biblical doctrine accessible like never before.

Ultimately, if there is a god, and it is the one described in the bible, then god help us all!

[...].

This is the best book you will ever buy. Buy one for yourself, one for your mother, one for your father, one for your siblings and most importantly, one for every priest you know.

To start things: I'm an atheist. If you're reading a book called "God Hates You, Hate Him Back", odds are you're either an atheist or someone with a lot of questions over your religious beliefs. If so, this book won't add anything to your life. If anything, this book makes reference to a number of works that do a better job at exposing the bible for all its fallacies, but most importantly, that expose religious belief and the dangers it entails.

The premise of the book is interesting, to point out that: 1) If you actually read the Old Testament without the adulation religion so often demands, you'd reach two possible outcomes: That this is all a work of fiction put up by men with an agenda, and that god doesn't exist; or that he (it?) does, and never in your life would you want to worship an evil entity such as this; and 2) If you actually read the New Testament, Jesus isn't the man of peace and moral example so many Christians believe him to be.

That is all very nice, if it wasn't marred by the fact that close to eighty percent of the book amounts to nothing but scathing commentaries on biblical quotes. At first, it was amusing, but when, more than half way through the book, I saw that this was just a collection of a number of variations for "Are you f*ing kidding me? That's horrible! Who thinks like that? Can anyone but an idiot think like that?", the book began to drag, and what was at first an amusing read turned to an exercise of patience. Many, many times I had to fight the urge to skip pages... It's the same urge I have whenever Dane Cook appears on the TV: Funny at first, but never with the right timing to move on from a joke.

The book is also very much in need editing.

Format: Paperback
As other reviewers have pointed out:

--The Bible is brutally boring (and most atheist or theist don't know this because they've never read it from cover to cover)
--Werleman is brutally funny (yet it must be mentioned that he provides keen scholarship, a good historical context, and often a poignant view of both ancient and modern society).

The combination is a wonderful, edgy yet comprehensive tour of the Old and New Testament, from Jehovah brutalizing humanity in Genesis to Jehovah brutalizing humanity in the Book of Revelation. And in between and beyond how most of humanity has made himself in his demented image. This is one of those rare books that will make you laugh during and after reading it, and unfortunately cringe as well when you realize the collective psychological trauma it has caused to Western Society.

Werleman nimbly seasons the book with both atheist and theist wisdom of the ages, grim statistics from inside and outside the Bible, and both passionate and compassionate commentary. And when he has to, Werleman lets the Bible narrative speak for itself, for better or worse. An entertaining but balanced read in the end, as well as good reference not only for knowledge of scripture but anti-apologetics as well.

The book is far from a polemic, though. Werleman certainly calls as he sees it, but he's honest enough to understand that the Bible is simply the stories of an ancient people in a brutal time that should be seen in that context (and the horrible damage done by those who refuse to!). He points out the places he found wisdom, the characters he saw as admirable and even the theologies that are inspirational (as are found in any ancient text).

Good fiction is supposed to make you laugh and cry.
