Really holds up a mirror to the twisted book that is the "Holy" Bible. If more Christians read the sections it references, they would be shocked.

I'm not completely sure what the point of this book is supposed to be. It's from American Atheist press. "Atheist" merely means "non-theist" and theist is already a vague word. In this case, it might better be called "Angry Atheist press", and who wouldn't be angry, defining themselves in terms of what they don't believe? If the point of this book is to expose the "God of War" of the Old Testament as a pretender and an also ran, in this the author succeeds admirably. What is the slaughter of 70,000 compared to the massacres wrought by atheists in the last century, who at a stroke slew millions? Hitler, Stalin, and Mao come to mind, for starters, and they were mere humans. Then again, if you think the universe is really a meaningless accident, you have no basis for ethics or morality, so who's to say they were wrong?
Paul's own story is also curious. He says he started, as we all do as an atheist, then he was a Catholic, then a "born again" Christian and then an atheist again. This is like saying a frog starts out as a tadpole, but then grows to a frog. The author seems to be saying it's better to remain a tadpole, or return to being one. Perhaps he grew very fast and is on his second childhood, or has been "born again" as an atheist. No wonder he seems angry, watching the other frogs hop away, who seem to have no desire to join him.
If I detect in this book a mocking tone, it's also not surprising. It must be annoying to think there's no meaning in the universe when everyone else thinks there is. Like everyone else, atheists sometimes feel a sense of wonder and gratitude, and the worst thing, as a former non-theist, G.K. Chesterton said, is that there's no one to thank. And it must be annoying watching the other frogs hop away, who consider the tadpole stage not the end, but the beginning of their journey.

While the author is obviously using humor to make a point, these stories are in the Bible...and clearly, they are the stories they choose NOT to tell in your Sunday School class. Bottom line...knowledge/education is the key, and this book provides it in an entertaining way.

The book is very well written and easy to follow. It also includes plenty of explanations, sources, and reasoning. It's written in a way that makes it easy to understand but also keeps the attention of the reader regardless of age or intellect.

he's bitter, and he needs to give Jesus another try. God wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him. that loving relationship side of God is present in all throughout the Bible and this author does not see that, so therefore he writes the way he does.

Devout Christians will not like this book, for it illustrates many of the stories as being either fiction, depraved or just plain disgusting.
If the reader is not an atheist at the start of this book, it's a fair chance he/she will be one after finishing it.
A short book, very easy to read, without a whole lot of jargon thrown in.

I like the idea of this book very much. I found this book as a recommendation because I had bought the "Awkward Moments Children's Bible". By comparison, this book feels pretty "low rent" in terms of illustrations and overall professionalism. I mean, I like the concept very much, and I would definitely recommend it, it's just not the best quality...

Book is larger than I'd like, large enough for the book to be floppy. The illustrations are kind of dull and the story is difficult to follow or read. Good satire, poorly executed.
