Originally conceived as a joint presentation between influential thinker and best-selling author Richard Dawkins and former evangelical preacher Dan Barker, this unique book provides an investigation into what may be the most unpleasant character in all fiction.
Barker combs through both the Old and New Testaments (as well as 13 different editions of the "Good Book"), presenting powerful evidence for why Scripture shouldn't govern our everyday lives. This witty, well-researched book suggests that we should move past the Bible and clear a path to a kinder and more thoughtful world.

Nice idea, but booooooring!
The great controversy between born again Christians and atheists seems to become more and more of a problem in the USA. From an outside Point of view, the harshness with which this conflict is fought is sometimes amusing, sometimes frightening.
While I personally confess to the devotion of Athena, I take some interest in this debate and have read and enjoyed several books from both sides (though I really prefer Hitchens, Harris and Dawkins, their opponents are always good for a laugh). So I thought I might enjoy this one, too.
However, while it might be a nice written ressource for arguments against a nice Judeo-Christian god, it is torture to listen to. This is not because of the Reader, but mostly because it has the charm of having a telephone book read to you.
