Overview

The Bible is not the word of God.

Biblical Nonsense is a broad look at the tremendous problem of associating divinity with the world's most popular book. This part-philosophical, part-scientific overview explores the Bible's divine treachery, scientific mistakes, historical errors, false prophecies, and comical absurdities. Biblical Nonsense also expands beyond these standard reasons for skepticism by tackling the rationale behind the emergence and perpetuation of Christianity, psychological and sociocultural reasons that drive Christians to cling to their beliefs, and illogical methods of argumentation invoked in the defense of the Bible.

Author Dr. Jason Long is a former Christian who condenses the most significant biblical problems into this single volume. Unlike other books in the field that delve into only one topic, this manuscript, comprehensible even to those who have never opened a Bible, is a full-fledged attempt to demonstrate that God's supposed word is a product of human minds, not divine inspiration. Dr. Long's fresh experiences in the church and advanced levels of educational enlightenment make him the perfect individual to present this vehemently unpopular, yet undeniably appealing topic.

    Mr Long clearly does not understand the very subject he seeks to address under this title.  The book is little more than an emotionally driven attempt to deny the veracity of the Bible.  The book is worth neither the money spent to purchase nor the time to read.

    Biblical Nonsense

    I enjoyed this book, because some examples of nonsense are one liners , with a description and where to look in the Bible.( you dont always need a whole page to explain.) I have read bigger books that dont pack the punch this one does. He gives his views on the nonsense, without degrading the reader, as he wants Christians also to read it. I would recomend this book to all my friends.

    A Must Read

    After trying several times to sit down and read the Bible, I never made it past Genesis¿all that ¿begat¿ stuff was all too boring for my taste. After reading Dr. Long¿s book, I¿ve gained a new interest in attempting to read the Bible. He presents his information in an interesting way that¿s not too scientific for the average person to understand or enjoy. Using actual biblical passages (some extremely hilarious and ridiculous), Dr. Long introduces the reader to many reasons as to why the Bible was not written or inspired by a divine being. I recommend this book to anyone curious about where the Bible came from and who wrote it.

    Awesome

    What a great book. This review really makes you think about the superstition of a people who wrote these stories thousands of years ago. I enjoy reading about Christianity, and this book was great.
