4.0 out of 5 stars Reviews spurred me to read this., 2 Jun. 2014
This review is from: The Case Against the Case For Christ: A New Testament Scholar Refutes the Reverend Lee Strobel (Kindle Edition)
Yes, both the high and low star reviews drew me to this as my first (not last) inestment in Price's excellent and characterful study.
Robert M Price delivers torrents of information with great humour and vocabulary. Though one review (Heel from Oxfordshire) didn't like the scholastic terms, I enjoyed reading on kindle where a flick and a press brings definitions to many names and some historic characters. I'm delighted to have read this book and gained a list of topics for an idle day googling. Am I alone in being a litte defensive of his penultimate chapter's comments about Benny Hill?

The reason I read about religious texts, histories and heirarchies is that I want to understand the character of those cults and their CEOs. These institutions repeatedly claim Truth yet their arguments, assertions and behaviours are seldom truthfully delivered or sustained. Strobel's brand of apologetics is representative of the whole industry, it seems to me: using their texts and archives as a warehouse of word clusters to be cut and pasted as a sword for their own memetic BS irrespective of the endeavours for honest and sincere investigation. A person with the character of any major religion would not be credible as a witness in a court of law - where being trustworthy iand honest is vital.

When I challenge street preachers and other peddlers of lies - especially to children - I push for how they extrude any god from the cosmos, let alone their specific creation and its fettid nest of demands. Any public conversation I have is mainly with the intent of empowering closet atheists who may be watching. For too long, these marketing documents from the unquestioning dogmas have served to stymie countless minds that could have found enjoyment and awe in the beautiful arena that our DNA has flourished. It would be folly not to clip the wings of religions with the army of question marks available to all.
