Jim Whitefield, author of `The Mormon Delusion' series.
It's only short so it's not a particularly taxing read, but covers a number of very reasonable and well considered arguments as to why he feels the Bible is erroneous and could not be the infallible word of God.
It's also quite refreshing in that whilst it does take a very clear stance against Christianity (and other religions to a lesser extent) it doesn't have the vitriolic rant that other atheist texts have.
Just having a more "softly softly" approach means that Christians who assume that all atheists / skeptics are just like Chris Hitchens will be pleasantly surprised and might actually take on board more of the message being conveyed rather than just switching off in the belief that they're the subject of hatred and persecution
The focus is still very much on the Old Testament though and as far as I'm aware a lot of "modern" Christians don't necessarily still consider the laws in say Leviticus for instance to still be valid. All of the ones I know have cut their hair round their temples, some have tattoos and most are partial to a prawn curry, so it might not have the same impact as if the focus was on the NT alone
But its logical, well researched and "well mannered" discourse on the importance of reading fully the scriptures from your chosen faith, and applying critical thinking.
Look forward to reading other books by Mr McAfee
I definitely recommend this book to anyone looking for information about discrepancies and conflicts in Bible and Christianity itself.
The only downside is that it is quite thin and I only wish it was thicker with more text because the author is an amazing writer and captures your attention on every page.
No new ideas are presented per se, but it is a very good summation of existing arguments and very easy to read compared to other works.
It's not the most aesthetically presented work but a must read for people wanting an overview of the state-of-the-art concerning arguments against Christianity.
