Review by: Melody Hewson on July 23, 2012 :
I'm afraid I was terribly disappointed with this book. I really wanted to like it. Being an ex-christian, I actually enjoy learning about conflicts and mistranslations of the religion.

Unfortunately, this was a less than enjoyable experience. The author's points were random and their thoughts were fairly random and all over the place. Rather than citing legitimate issues, he instead added what were supposed to be humorous shortened versions of the stories, tossing in insults like a bitter spectator, and using a lot of crass, unnecessary expletives.

You don't have to be a biblical scholar to write about what's wrong with christianity or its "holy" book, but this is NOT the way to do it. This is more like a blog posting than a book, or even a sample of a book. If the full novel follows suit, I would recommend for anyone to just completely skip it.

Gee, who woulda thunk that all these "books" within the bible would end up on a publisher's desk 300 years later
and the publisher didn't edit it, he just published it!! (right)

Sam exposes a lot of things in the bible that most Christians aren't aware of. The violence .. OMG ..

I am unclear why Christians believe in it. Very little is in it about Christ.

This is a true statement: God is the ultimate serial killer. None of us will get out of here alive. His Plan is to kill us all off. And most go in a ghastly manner
with hideous suffering. His Plan for some is to suffer their whole lives from afflictions, etc. This was God's plan????

I am told that "God loves you" .. so why is his plan so ghastly for so many people? If he created and loved all the people, why did only certain people get to be on Noah's Ark and he killed off the rest of the world?? I am not particularly stupid, but I don't get it.

Hail to Sam for giving us his insight into the bible.

You might want to stop and think about some of these shocking stories.

Sam Warren did an excellent job at translating the myths of the bible with all its mumbo-jumbo into real, understandable language. Anyone who teaches kids about creationism, whether parents, a church or a school, should be charged with child abuse. With all the violence, rape, incest, pornography and incidents of mass murder in the bible, it should be an age-restricted book. However, Sam's analyisis of the bible is worthy for readers of all ages.

Not bad, but Qhaddafy isn't open to thoughts which conflict with his/her own. This is nobel prize compared to trips to Jamaica, gnomes, tours around various innocuous places, and others which are insipid at best. Sam's okay. Don't worry, just read it as it's written. Not bad. Maybe never get a Pulitzer, but he's done a good job. "Hate book?" The bible is a story of myth, fiction, and irrational belief in things that never existed, so why not take a moment and reexamine your own beliefs and read this as it is meant to be read, a wide open thought of what is silly and still rooted in the 11th Century and refusing to climb out of the swill.

Review by: Qhaddafy on June 13, 2012 :
A 'hate-book', or whatever the legal term is. In short, it focus on finding the weakness of what it hates (in this case, Bible), instead of trying to find the 'truth'. It is in no way humorous, unless you already shared their belief. Let's take the 'Pharaoh's Stupid Dream' for example, how in the world could cow eats a cow? However, it was a DREAM, or perhaps its a Creationists' curse to have illogical dreams? (won't happen to Extensionalists?) Although,being a creationists but not a Christian, it's not my business to defend Bible, and I can't defend it well anyway.

It is still a well edited book anyway, although neither funny nor convincing.
