"Simply incredible. The book features beautiful/disturbing illustrations of Bible passages that no Christians want to admit are in their holy book. If you have to read a Bible, this is the one to read. It's the equivalent of learning a new language and immediately looking up all the curse words." - Hemant Meta, The Friendly Atheist
"Sign me up for volume 2 and every other volume that ever comes out." - The American Jesus
"Just like the Bible, this book isn't actually suitable for children. But it is a funny look at ugly and absurd verses that Christians typically just gloss over or ignore." - Brain Hulk
"It might take reading books like this one to jolt some Christians to the actual reading of some of the "awkward moments" of the Bible shown. [This book] helps Christians to awaken to being able to critically think and respond to the [Bible verses] raised up." - Dan Kimball, pastor and author
"[The book] has proved successful at garnering the attention of Christians, many of whom were initially outraged at the Awkward Bible's depiction of the Bible and Christ. But many atheists and Christians stayed on the site and ultimately began having conversations with one another." - The Christian Post
"Entertaining and thought-provoking for Christians and non-Christians alike! Awkward Moments uses humor as an important educational tool, challenging believers and non-believers alike to really think about the Bible's contents and historical context. The book encourages readers to dig deeper into their Bibles while simultaneously making them wish they hadn't. This is much more than an irreverent gag gift - it tackles the age-old problem of Biblical ignorance in a surprisingly powerful way!" - David G. McAfee, author of "Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist: The Guide to Coming Out as a Non-believer"
"NOT FOR KIDS! The illustrations are vibrant and full of life, mimicking that of the most revered children's books - at times tricking readers to not notice the real subtext of the image and verse. As a result, readers may miss the subtle nuance and innuendo hidden in the images at first glance. It is the commentaries that are included with each passage that will unveil the purpose of the illustrations and challenge many readers, bringing to light many ideas and facts that may trouble the average Christian" - Broadway World
About the Author
HORUS GILGAMESH was raised Catholic before being "born again" in college when he began following a calling toward full-time ministry. Early on, his efforts were focused on youth evangelism and Biblical literacy around the world. When he was on a missions trip to Africa, a fearless young boy approached, pleading, "Chakula? Maji?"- the Swahili words for "food" and "water." Unfortunately, Horus had no food or water to offer the poor child - only Bibles. A few days later, Horus met a humanitarian relief worker from Spain who shared five simple words of wisdom that would change his life forever - "Empty stomachs have no ears." Horus realized that he was not meeting the very real needs of the people he was hoping to help - he was struggling to finding a purpose in his own life, as a self righteous servant of his Creator. To many Christians, the most important gift you could ever give to a man is a chance at eternal life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ - the Living Water. But what about this life? There are billions who would give anything for a drink of regular old H2O.

- David G. McAfee, author of "Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist: The Guide to Coming Out as a Non-believer" and "Disproving Christianity and other Secular Writings"
I'm still not sure. But I will be going to my Bible and doing some research
THE POSITIVE: First, the illustrations are absolutely fantastic. Not just because of their colorful style, but because of all of the subtext and undertones that they hide for the reader to find again AFTER they read the commentaries in the back of the book. And, as for the analysis essays, I'm pretty sure the author could write books on Biblical history and the sociological influence of Christianity through the ages. (who knows? Maybe they have under their real name?)
My favorites (for very different reasons): Jesus and the Leper, Lot's Daughters, and the story of Job. (Actually, I can't choose - there are too many powerful messages to explore...)
THE NEGATIVE: The ONLY thing I didn't like about this book was the foreword by the fake "God" from Facebook. It doesn't need it. In fact, I think it detracts from is otherwise a very well written, very witty, very challenging book. Seriously, why did they invite a "fart humor" fake celebrity to be a part of this book?
I bought three from the author (which all came signed) and then got a couple more via Amazon for friends overseas. Everybody is RAVING about them! Best gift book ever! (logic and reason)
Comical and detailed illustrations with an excellent blend of colours which really highlight some of the inaccuracies and moral pitfalls in the scripture it parodies. The Bible -if read alone- is a controversial and contradictory text and this very funny meditation emphasises the point and I think a lot of so called 'Christians' should read it before pointing fingers and yelling 'blasphemy!' because those are exactly the kind of characters this book makes fun of!
10/10 would recommend, thank you!
