About this title


An adult parody of children's Bible-story books. Because it is extremely accurate -- even anatomically accurate -- in depicting the often shocking tales that make the bible an ethicist's nightmare Illustrated Stories From The Bible can be recommended for children no more than one could recommend the Bible itself. Each tale (illustrated by cartoonist Kathy Demchuck) is told in the wide-eyed, isn't-God-wonderful manner of the books usually employed to entice children into churches. Each story is followed, however, by a rationalist's ethical critique that draws upon the best modern scholarship concerning the Bible. Stories include: Elisha and the Bears; Jephtha's Daughter; Little Gershom's Penis; Uriah the Hittite; David's Census; Moses Helps God Understand; Slaughter Of the Midianites; Famine In Samaria; Where Giants Came From; Wives For the Benjamites; and When Jesus Drowned the Pigs.

About the Author:

Paul Farrell was born in Perth, Scotland, and moved to Canada when he was thirteen. With a degree in Political Science and a Masters in Public Adminisration, he has made a career in the health-care industry in British Columbia -- while living the life of a semiprofessional soccer player as well! Like everyone, Paul was born an Atheist, but then he was reared as a Roman Catholic. In his early twenties he became a born-again Christian and began researching topics from evolution to abortion. He developed into a fervent apologist for fundamentalism and frequently debated issues from the fundamentalist perspecive. Ultimately, his intense and thorough studies led him out of the Bible and Christianity altogether. He became a born-again Atheist. "I found myself in the embarrassing position of having to admit that the Bible god was not the loving, divine being that I had been defending. Instead, it was a rather unsavory character conjured up in the minds of men. It was sobering to realize how easily I had managed to gloss over critical biblical problems during all my Bible studies. I resolved to present these issues in a way that could not simply be swept under the rug and ignored."
