An Outstanding Defense of a Good Book
A friend gave me a copy of this brand-new book and I was blown away. It's unlike any book on the Bible you'll ever read. Instead of being an apologetics-type book, The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible gives you the 'big picture' of how dramatically the ideas in the Bible utterly transformed the world. The author argues that the Bible paved the way for the recognition of universal human rights, the notion of equality, of the dignity of women, limited government, even experimental science. He's also very funny, occasionally sarcastic, when poking holes in the arguments of what he calls today's 'atheist crusaders.' If you want an invigorating defense of the place of the Bible in western culture -- or even just want to learn more about the Bible -- this is a great way to do it. I think this would be a perfect book to give to skeptical teenagers so they can appreciate more why they're forced to read the Bible in Sunday School or in church. A delight!
