Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them)
Jesus, Interrupted: Revealing the Hidden Contradictions in the Bible (And Why We Don't Know About Them)
Price: £4.36

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good on the history, not so good on the conclusions, 21 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The author has an incredibly deep understanding of the origins and meanings of the bible. He clearly explains how the myth was created and why it had such contradictory views within it. All this is based on historical research. But when trying to decide if Jesus really existed he abandons research and then relies on unproven sources such as the mysterious "Q". Come on Mr Ehrman. You KNOW Jesus was a mythical figure. Take the final step and admit it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter crap, 20 May 2015
The title of this book should be "A Manual of How to Abuse Your Child". Quack science written by an utterly irresponsible and deluded woman. A disgrace that Amazon crap like this that is so potentially harmful. Shame on you Amazon.

Bella Mafia
Bella Mafia
by Lynda La Plante
Edition: Paperback
Price: £7.99

1.0 out of 5 stars Utter rubbish, don't waste your money, 3 Jan. 2015
This review is from: Bella Mafia (Paperback)
This book is so bad I couldn't believe it was actually written by Lynda La Plante. Lazy writing, numerous plot implausibilities, innumerable continuity mistakes, crass, stereotypical, one dimensional characters and far, far too long. I wasted 18 hours reading this trash. I will think twice before buying another La Plante


A History Of God
A History Of God
Price: £5.03

4.0 out of 5 stars brilliantly researched work, 31 Mar. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A History Of God (Kindle Edition)
A superbly researched in-depth study which shows how the god myth developed in various societies. Starting in the pre Old Testament era, the book covers the development of the god idea by Jews, Christians (of various sects) and Muslims. It is a must read for any atheist who engages in debate with theists.

4.0 out of 5 stars excellent introduction to philosophy, 17 Feb. 2014

This is an excellent introduction to what can seem to be a daunting subject. It is clear and simply written with lots of examples to illustrate the theories. Highly recommended

5.0 out of 5 stars another brilliant Aubrey/Maturin tale, 4 Feb. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There is little to say about the Aubrey/Maturin series that hasn't already been said. In short they are incomparable. If you haven't read them, there is a huge gap in your library. The very best naval novels.

5.0 out of 5 stars as ever, Hitch is relentlessly honest and perceptive, 20 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Mortality (Kindle Edition)
Hitch examines his own terminal illness with the critical awareness that never failed him. An inspiration in honesty. Such a loss to the world of reason.


Letter To A Christian Nation
Letter To A Christian Nation
Price: £4.68

5.0 out of 5 stars Sam Harris socks it to the fundamentalists, 1 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The insanity of religious fundamentalism, and in particular the modern phenomenon of its manifestation in the world's wealthiest country, has no greater critic than Sam Harris. This short, eloquent book gives the reasonable mind plenty of ammunition with which to confront the religious fanatics. Those who remain rational have a duty to read it and fight on against the dark forces of religious fundamentalism in the west.
