Wasn t sure about this one based on the title, but it s actually used as a springboard to a discussion of taking the Bible New Testament literally Author examines the NT in detail, pointing out the contradictions found in different versions of the Christ story, later going on to examine Acts and Revelation similarly as well Final section focuses on the American founding fathers own words describing their strong objections to a non secular society guided by as a euphemism a specific reli Wasn t sure about this one based on the title, but it s actually used as a springboard to a discussion of taking the Bible New Testament literally Author examines the NT in detail, pointing out the contradictions found in different versions of the Christ story, later going on to examine Acts and Revelation similarly as well Final section focuses on the
Thomas Quinn is a funny guy I appreciated the gentle understatement of his digs at Christianity, for example The next morning, when he wakes up hungry, Jesus spots a fig tree But there s nothing on it except leaves So, this is what the Gospel writers claim Jesus says to the tree May no fruit ever come from you again And the fig tree withered at once Mark 11
If you always thought the utter destruction of all religious thought would be fun, Thomas Quinn shows you fun.First of all, this is a skeptic book Are we clear Ok, because I don t think you could handle it if you have the faintest gossamer of religiosity in you On the other hand, if you re a skeptic, agnostic or plain and simple atheist, I dare you to try and put this book down once you started reading it I also dare you not to laugh out loud with Quinn s witty, well timed humor The author If you always thought the utter destruction of all religious thought would be fun, Thomas Quinn shows you fun.First of all, this is a skeptic book Are we clear Ok, because I don t think you could handle it if you have the faintest gossamer of religiosity in you On the other hand, if you re a skeptic, agnostic or plain and simple atheist, I dare you to try and put this book down once you started reading it I also dare you not to laugh out loud with Quinn s witty, well timed humor The author
This is one book on Christian history that I really enjoyed Skeptical, honest, and many parts were humorous it was hard to put down It also helped me see things I already thought I knew in a new light while learning so muchas well. I wanted to like this book , but 1 Quinn decides that proof doesn t equal actual proof when it comes to archaeological evidence of where the Hebrews had been such as Egypt or the Sinai Peninsula.2 Quinn completely ignores Jesus reportedly having said that he was not here on Earth to change any of the old Hebrew rules 3 Quinn gives no service to the actual denominational differences that fragment modern post Reformation Christianity.He is a little to taken with what he assumes i I wanted to like this book , but 1 Quinn decides that proof doesn t equal actual proof when it comes to archaeological evidence of where the Hebrews had been such as Egypt or the Sinai Peninsula.2 Quinn completely ignores Jesus reportedly having said that he was not here on Earth to change any of the old Hebrew rules 3 Quinn gives no service to the actual denominational differences that fragment mod
I would have given it 5 stars but the blokey rather American go figure etc. style was sometimes wearing that said it is an excellent run through the Bible funny and informative even for someone who is reasonably familiar with the myths It starts with its debt to any number of previously popular deities and stories although it skips my favourite Moses alike Sargon and his basket and then looks at the inconsistencies, contradictions and just plain lunacy of the old new testaments A I would have given it 5 stars but the blokey rather American go figure etc. style was sometimes wearing that said it is an excellent run through the Bible funny and informative even for someone who is reasonably familiar with the myths It starts with its debt to any number of previously popular deities and stories although it skips my favourite Moses ali
this book was packed with facts about the history of Christianity it didn t go into great detail, but given an excellent overview I learned a lot from it I also like the fact that the author s tone was very evenhanded he had no problem criticizing Christianity, but he didn t use vitriol to do it He kept up a pretty neutral tone, although he did outline some of the abuses of
Won in a Goodreads Giveaway I m not anti religion I m anti shove your religion in my face and tell me that your way is the only way I m anti the bible is the be all end all This outstanding book shows how Christianity came to be, despite the fact that the bible contradicts itself in many, many ways I got a reminder of some old stuff and learned some new.Quinn s funny take on the subject matter made it much easier to digest I wouldn t call it irreverent at all, just laugh out loud funny Won in a Goodreads Giveaway I m not anti religion I m anti shove your religion in my face and tell me that your way i
I feel that I have the same twisted sense of humor as the author, so I really couldn t stop reading this If you are very sensitive about your religion or have a closed mind, this book is probably not for you.Interesting facts with humor in all the right spots, you just can t go wrong With all that said, I still do not feel this was a religion bashing book I think he handles the topic beautifully.My parents left the Catholic church years ago for half the things that are addressed in this book I feel that I have the same twisted sense of humor as the author, so I really couldn t stop reading this If you are very sensitive about your religion or have a closed mind, this book is probably not for you.Interesting facts with hum
