"His acid wit and delightfully humorous analysis of Biblical testament will have your neck cramping from continuously nodding in agreement. He meticulously scrutinises the Bible, chapter by thrilling chapter, articulating the many contradictions and indeed misconceptions that the religious conveniently overlook." -- Rusty Lime, November 16, 2009
"This book absolutely crucifies the argument for a benevolent creator. What's more, it uses the creationist's most-cited source to do it." --Daily Atheist, November 02, 2009
About the Author
In 2005 CJ Werleman experienced, first-hand, the appalling religiously motivated terrorist attacks on Bali. This further motivated him to warn his fellow humans of the perils of religious faith over common sense. He is a contributing columnist to the Bangkok Post and has been published in Inside Business Success. This is his first published book.

It seems that unless we have a running monologue about how stupid these Christians are and how they are such f***ing morons to believe all this hogwash then we can't discuss the subject. I got about 30 pages in and stopped reading.
I am a born again atheist. I do not believe in God, heaven or hell - at all. I thought that reading this book might help me in arguing with believers. A long time ago I studied Theology and hoped that this book would help refresh my mind about all of the many flaws in the bible. It did do so but any Christian reading it would just be able to point to how unpleasantly obnoxious it is. I suppose if you sift through it you can gain knowledge but I prefer Dawkins more polite writings.
I would like to see it rewritten without the bad language and the "nudge nudge wink wink" aren't they all complete w**kers for believing in this cr*p.
This book-by-book analysis of the poorly written, dated and self-contradictory tome purporting to be the word of god is a work of art and should be deeply pondered by everyone thinking of surrendering rational thought in favour of blind 'faith'.
It will ruffle many feathers, provoke outrage and a bunch of childish name-calling (see some of the remarks left by other reviewers), as many will find it hard to accept that the basis upon which they have lived their lives does not stand up to the reality check this book offers.
I HIGHLY recommend this book, together with 'The God Delusion', 'God Is Not Great', and 'The End Of Faith' by other authors.
That being said, the book does have an undertone of all seriousness. Sure we can laugh at the faithful and their backward belief system, but as CJ points out there are plenty of people who revere this pith as the absolute truth! CJs no holds bar attack on this cult is justified and venerable.
So I can recommend this book to anyone who wants to equip themselves with some prime-time,anti-religious quotations. You are guaranteed to find something great inside this little gem.
93% of American households own at least one copy of the bible known, despite its sadism, grotesque sex and a god with an insatiable appetite for flattery, as "The Good Book."
More than 50% of High School seniors think Sodom and Gomorrah are a married couple.
The same percentage of Americans don't know Genesis is the first book of the Bible.
More than 20% think Moses was one of Jesus' disciples.
And yet a recent Rasmussen poll found 44% of Americans believe in the literal truth of the bible. This means they believe a talking snake encouraged a woman to eat an apple; a 900 year old man built an Arc to replenish humanity. And that is only from the Introduction. The only caution I offer is that when you read the book you could do yourself an injury laughing. But you will learn more about the bible, more entertainingly and based on serious research than you could imagine. I loved it.
This book is really for those people who, love god. Why? Because he really does hate you. Or If he doesn't hate you. Then at the most It's showing a great deal of disinterest in your well being.
If you are a religionista, try reading your "holy" book. And use "God hates you.." as a guide. Look things up for yourself and make your own mind up.
CJ Werleman has written a funny and entertaining book about our greatest mistake. And I implore all those of a religious bent to read it (which you won't). He points out the parts people gloss over (or even worse), Try to justify the main characters actions.
What have you got to loose?
Well done CJ. Excellent book. I look forward to more.

In your face, hilarious expose of what the Bible really says, without fudging using the "metaphor" excuse. Fabulous.Published 19 months ago by Cinders54
So badly written it's painful to read. I've no idea how it got published in the first place. In a book about the God of the Bible you'd expect the author to be able to spell Ark... Read morePublished on 18 April 2015 by Amazon Customer
Very badly written. I'm an atheist, fan of Sam Harris, AC Grayling and others who write well about secularism and anti-theism.
