Does the author exhibit anger because he feels he was misled? The title of the book tells it all; Biblical Nonsense. Of course he did. He is angry as any one of would be if we felt we had been deceived throughout our lifetime by people that we were told we could trust. This is not the same level as the sudden realization at age nine that Santa doesn't exist. This deception deals with the bedrock of not only the morality and the holy sacredness we were taught that should exist in our own lifetimes but what we were told about our humanity living on into eternity. So, did the author become sarcastic at times in the text? Yes, but that is only another form of anger expression. All of us should become angry if, indeed, what the author conveys is true.
Does the author attempt to convince you, like most religionists would do, that his is the only way to view God (or whatever you want to identify as being the Supreme Being)? No. He simply wants each of us to take the same responsibility that he has taken and that is to curiously question that which others tell you should be accepted solely on `faith'. We do it in all other less important areas of our lives, why would we not do it in the area that is the most critical to our entire state of being; our spirituality. I congratulate the author for asking such a bold and perilous questions and taking the steps necessary to attain a more honest and meaningful definition of life.
I have read other books of a similar nature and have done countless hours of self-study in these same areas (with nearly the same results). For someone who wants a good summary text that explores the basic areas where the Bible appears to be erroneous, I strongly advise this book. Will you be shocked by what you read? Obviously, yes. Will you be convinced that the author's conclusions are accurate and meaningful to your life? Probably not. But will you file its contents away in the back of your mind and, by doing so, eventually take a fresher look at the question, "Who am I and why am I here?". I certainly hope so.
May God truly speed us all on our individual journeys.....
