Talk about being bias!,
This review is from: What is Good?: The Search for the Best Way to Live (Paperback)I've read the bible quite a bit and come from a religious back-ground, what a coincidence that im going to write a negative review on this book.....but anyways I chose to read this book to understand it from a differant perspective, assuming Grayling would have his facts straight, but to my disappointment he doesn't. i can tell you--by just reading his book-- that he has never thourghouly read the bible because he takes verses out context. What a disappointment! If your going to read this book be open-minded enough to read books from the oppoiste perspective.

Or bother to spell correctly?

any negative review from a theist with poor grammar or spelling counts as an endorsement in my book.

Theists love the "out of context" line, but was Luke taking the miracle stories out of context when he consciously modelled the story set in Nain after the miracle at Sarepta? He even gives Nain a fictional gate, just so it tallies up nicely with the Old Testament story.

Yes, please quote a passage, the context it was SUPPOSED to be taken in, and the context Grayling takes it in. You probably couldn't, could you?

Surely it isn't that Grayling hasn't got his facts straight or taken Bible verses out of context but rather he has read the bible from the opposite perspective?
