This review is from: God Hates You, Hate Him Back: Making Sense of The Bible (Kindle Edition)
This might be the best ever title for a book. I took 17,814 words of notes (copying and pasting from Kindle). It is packed with hilariously presented, bulletproof facts to keep the godly at bay.
I was brought up by a Bible-bashing father, and am an ex-Christian atheist myself. It would break my Dad's heart if he knew I had read this. I wish he would read it.
As Werleman points out: most Christians will have heard only the hand-picked verses preached in church. "Sound-bites sell because most people don't have time to drill deep into the heart of the issues." Well, Werleman has drilled deep. He lays bare the lies of a loving God and of gentle Jesus. We see the vengefulness, genocide, racism, homophobia, misogyny, ethnic cleansing, infanticide, and the support of slavery.
As well as the wickedness contained in the Bible, Werleman highlights the large number of contradictions and fallacies. He combs mercilessly through every book of the Old and New Testaments. This is an amazing accomplishment, one for which I am extremely grateful.
