While the author does use some biblical evidence to build his case, he doesn't do a thorough job of examining all the arguments for and against his position. Furthermore, he rarely quotes verses, preferring to say "The Bible says..." Of course, what follows is the author's interpretation of what the Bible says, not what it actually says. Quoting the verses -- or at least providing the exact chapter and verse where they can be found -- would be helpful.
There were a few passages in the book that were good. I appreciated the author's observation that Paul prayed for boldness more than anything else. I hadn't thought about that before, and I've been meditating on it for the last few days.
Ultimately, while I don't fully agree (or disagree) with the author's position, it is a good book to read if you'd like to challenge your own beliefs. Just remember that the book is written in an intentionally offensive tone and that you will need to further research the claims the author makes to come to your own conclusions.
It is a refreshing point of view for anyone to think about. Far too often, things are 'proven' by taking scripture out of context without regard to the whole of the work.
The book is very thought provoking and will give the reader a lot to think about. Even a 'pacifist' will get a glimpse of other thoughts that might make them think a little without being a sheep blindly following something.
A definite must for any student of the subject.
In fact, it can only be answered by telling the author that he does, in fact, completely suck at his religion.
