    This book is halariously offensive.

    I wasn't sure how to take this book. Social-Political statement? Pure humor? Whatever the intent of "God", it was really funny. I have a list of about 18 people I know who should NOT read it, but a larger list that should. Of course I don't agree with half the stuff talked about, but I think that's the point. No one gets off on this one.

    In the same breath as saying gays are now the chosen people of God, the author provides a laundry list of stereotypical things they need to change. The same goes for blacks, Jews, and fat people.

    The book is also illustrated and half the pictures are pure humor, and the other half make you cringe (or at least me).

    I recommend this book for atheists, agnostics, and anyone religious that has a sense of humor about their faith.

    So bad (meaning good)

    I gotta go anonymous on this review cause I don't want to be associated with this book, but people have to read it. In fact, I bet that's why it has so few reviews. I just looked at sales figures and I don't see how this book could be in so many people's hands and no one's got an opinion.

    Anyway, so God's new book is an uncensored (not for kids) body slam to the world. It tackles every issue that I could think of, saying "what everyone else is afraid to say". It's funny as hell, and who knew God had such a foul mouth. I'm not passing it on to my mom, but you can be sure my friends will be receiving this gospel over the next couple months.

    Go God!

    All I have to say is...HOLY!

    This has got to be the most offensive thing I've ever read. It doesn't offend me personally, but I was offended on behalf of everyone I know will be offended.

    That said, it is fricking hilarious and the illustrations made me wince/laugh/groan/cry. I guess I'll recommend it, but don't bring your wrath to me if you're outraged! You were warned!

    So Much Better Than "The Last Testament"

    I read both books and, as usual, the first is the best. God's voice in The Way... makes you feel like God just happens to be one of your buddies you grew up with. The Chapters read like God's having a beer with you at the bar and going off about this thing or that. The Last Testament has too much of the old time ancient speak and trying to be oh so clever. I may have grown up Catholic, but my god is the one that wrote THIS book lol.

    Raunchier than expected

    I read a couple pages and found this so incredibly offensive (and I am not generally an overly sensitive, lily-livered reader) that I returned it.
