Customer Review

on 15 May 2014
As an atheist for many years, I enjoyed this book. The author's method is to work through KJV book by book, quoting extensively, then commenting. His comments are pithy and frequently very funny. Some fainter hearts may be put off by his colourful language, but I judge it to be a measure of his contempt for religion, which I share.
At intervals, Shuty interpolates thoughtful essays of a less splenetic tone, which show him to be dedicated to the primacy of reason and good sense.
I hadn't looked into the Bible to any extent for a few years, and reading these extensive quotations made me realise afresh what nonsense it is, and wonder anew how people can take it seriously. I suppose, as Shuty says, it's because few people read it, and then only cherry-picked bits.
Read and enjoy.
