Draws back the curtain and proves that the authors of the Bible were, in fact, ignorant, superstitious men with no understanding of how the world works. By the way, Joseph was not Jesus' biological father, so how was he descended from King David??
I had forgotten some of the disturbing passages in both the Old and New Testaments. The book is organized well, with each chapter comparing contradictory verses about a given topic. I wish it was longer.
The guy doesnt know anything about the bible. His book says that the bible contradicts itself, but take for example were he says that jesus grandfather is one guy and then he says hes another guy in Luke:3 well its been proven that one is the father of mary and the other the father of joseph thats not contradiction thats fact.
Don't bother. Writen by someone who has no clue about the Bible. Passages taken completely out of contex.
