What happens when an ordinary person picks up the Bible and simply reads it? Amazing things. Hilarious things. Unbelievable things. Bible Study for Pagans approaches the Bible as if it were an Improvised Explosive Device--something that could blow your mind any second. Did you know that soon after Creation, angels lusted after human women and had children by them? No, you didn't. But check out Genesis 6:1-4. The Bible is a mine field of stuff like this, and Bible Study for Pagans uncovers each mine, sorts them out and--sometimes--makes sense of them. Though often whimsical, Bible Study for Pagans also treats the Bible with respect, for there is no doubt that it is one of the primary shaping forces of Western civilization. And the Bible does have its great moments. The book of Exodus is one of the great epic stories ever told--though it has its outrageously funny moments as well. Bible Study for Pagans makes it clear that the New Testament account of Jesus and the birth of Christianity has been selectively harvested by the Christian establishment. Read as a whole, the New Testament is full of narrative and doctrinal inconsistencies. The signs of retroactive editing are all over the place. After reading Bible Study for Pagans' analysis of the New Testament, you'll see why an argument could be made that Saint Paul is the most important figure in Christian history, for it is he who figured out how to market Jesus to the Western world. The Bible’s core concepts influence how we think every day, whether you’re a believer or not. Redemption, Original Sin, the Apocalypse, Resurrection, Final Judgment, Heaven, Hell—these ideas are in the very air we breathe, and you owe it to yourself to find out where that breeze is blowing from. Read Bible Study for Pagans and your copy of the Bible will never look the same to you again.
