5.0 out of 5 stars The Bible as an unreliable text, 18 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: NONSENSE FROM THE BIBLE (Kindle Edition)
I awarded this book 5* on the basis of value for money and because it lets the Bible do the talking, with extended relevant texts. I didn't like the confessional style, the hyperbole or the exclamation marks, but the sections which dealt with the Bible as an unreliable text were excellent. In particular, the chapter on the end times and the second coming explores what the Bible actually says on these topics and finds it wanting. The chapters on the Crucifiction and Resurrection and the Prophecies are also good. It was less good when it strayed into areas such as the power of prayer and family values, or into the Old Testament myths, but these chapters are well worth reading too. I have yet to encounter convincing Christian answers to the key questions: "Was Jesus the son of God or the son of a Man?" "Why are there such inconsistencies around the Resurrection story?" and "Why did Christ break his repeated promise to return within the lifetime of those listening to him?" This book will not answer those questions for you, because it sets out to show that the Bible itself presents a confusing story. People of faith will not, I'm sure, be impressed; much less convinced.
