If you're still waiting for JC to return, why not read this while you're clicking your heels?
on 9 October 2010
Following on from his earlier book in which he gave a very thorough and undignified roughing-up to God-The-Father, Werleman now slams Jesus-The-Son up against the wailing wall and delivers some pretty brutal knees to the Anointed One's groin.
The author is the first to admit that there's nothing new in his merciless attack on the pivotal character of Christianity - it's all been done before, of course.
However, unlike the more delicate and scholarly writers of older and more fearful times, C. J. exhibits no deference to a subject that has sought to wrap itself in everything from 'being sacrosanct' to inventing the 'crime' of blasphemy.
I love Werleman's style. He has no time for guff and hokum - especially when such devices are used by the cynical to control the ignorant.
If you are religious you will not want this book, much less read it.
If - on the other hand - you are growing weary of global and local conflicts and tensions that are predicated on who believes in the correct invisible being, you might just find that this book will give you that last push out of the darkness of age-old superstition into the clear and fresh light of logic, reason, common sense and - above all - humanity.
Having thus dispensed with two-thirds of the Holy Trinity, I can't wait for C. J. Werleman's next book in which he might be obliged to tackle that dastardly insubstantial one - The Holy Ghost.
