The stark truth is that most people have never read the entire Bible, let alone most of it. Yet millions still believe the Sharia Laws of a Bronze Age deity, which they don't fully grasp, should dominate a civilization that has embraced reason and spiritual individuality. Devoid of mythical allegory, historical context and critical reasoning, The Bible is a tool for both societal and personal oppression. A new book not only takes us on a satirical, comprehensive journey of the entire Canon, it exposes the poisonous impact on those who choose the path of Literalism.
Beyond an entertaining safari of an ancient people and their challenges, it's a sober warning to the growing threat of fundamentalism in our times. We also deal with Bible absurdities, Apologetics, and the modern Freethinking movement. And whether the Atheist movement will have better luck than the Gnostics did 2000 years ago...even as it realizes, whether He exists or not, that the Demiurge is as dangerous as ever.
