Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Those who take the Bible too seriously leave themselves open to charges of Bible worship, while those who translate the Bible through the lenses of contemporary ideological perspectives try to make ancient documents conform to modern inclusive language principles. Moser's book parodies both of these approaches to the Bible. His humorous retelling of biblical tales in politically correct lingo stands as a good-natured reminder of the limitations of the biblical texts and of biblical interpretation. Moser's book also constitutes a jocular dig in the ribs of contemporary ideologues who try to make the Bible conform to what they perceive as politically correct standards. In Moser's spoof, Lord becomes "Lady" half the time, Abraham is "Abe," the Three Wise Men become "the Three Self-Fulfilled Individuals" and the Dead Sea Scrolls become "the Biologically Challenged Sea Scrolls."
