The Bible exposed as a work of fiction
on 24 May 2014
I am always slightly reluctant to provide a book review as peoples perceptions of different works can be so subjective. However in the case of this book I will gladly make an exception.
I, like many other children were indoctrinated into religion at school. However from quite early on all these stories did not really ring true in my head. How was everyone so sure about all these events, words spoken when it was so long ago? So throughout the majority of my adult life (I am approaching 60) I have sought to resolve these questions in my mind. I would say that after exploring many avenues I was left with little opportunity but to resign myself that atheism was the only real answer to my quest for the truth.
Robert Griffith's book is by far one of the best books I have read on the absurdity of religion. He clearly exposes the very shaky foundations that under both the Old and New Testaments. He presents his evidence in clear and lucid manner and isolates particular text to make his points very clearly.
Overall I have really enjoyed the book and would thoroughly recommend it to any who has an interest in theology and religion. Unfortunately I suspect it will be dismissed by the majority of religious fanatics. And in a way that only goes to prove the point of the book, and that is that the majority of religions never question their own belief systems.
