I would say that this book best compares to the food and water that we need for our bodies. In the same way we desire more food and drink throughout our day, so in the same ...more
I've read the Bible multiple times, and intend to keep on reading it for the rest of my life. I know it to be God's communication to humanity, written by men under the guidance of His Spirit, and revealing His nature, His love, His plans for the universe and for our salvation, and the principles by which we should live. It's a bedrock foundation of truth on which to build our lives.
I’ve only ever read translations, so I can’t rightfully give it 5 stars. And I’m not interested in learning a foreign language for the sole purpose of reading it, so I probably never will give it 5 stars. But it has been around for a very long time and most of the books published in the world don’t have that k ...more
Well last year about this time I tried again. This time I set time aside for devotion and Bible reading, each morning. I placed my Bible and computer on my nightstand. I used the Our Daily Bread webpage for devotion. It is a very short read with ...more
Sad this bunch of dross inspired so much violence and hatred through the centuries and still does.
ETA: Had to read this again for summer 2009 class - it's even more unbelievable to me after a refresher that anyone could believe one word of this and think it's the word of anything but humans bent on building a power base. the Old T ...more

I have many blogs on their feel free to browse around.
This review will likely not change any opinions about this book. It will perhaps give anyone interested a look into my particular worldview. Disagree with me all you like, for my worldviews are based simply upon questioning, reading and attempting to understand the world according to scripture and observation. For everything I have seen in my life and of the world confirms to me that there is a spiritual side to reality and that there is a powerful God who exists.

Books I have fully read:
The Holy Bible is a letter from God about His family. He tells about His sons and daughters such as Moses, Abraham, and Deborah, and most of all, tells us how we can be saved through His Son Jesus Christ. The last section of this book, called the New Testament, explains how Jesus, who was God's Son, came to earth in the form of a man, and gave His life so that we could go to heaven to be with Him. Three of my favourite quotes from this book are "God so loved the world that He gave His one and on...more

I am trying to read the entire Bible, as an adult, for real (no cheating, skimming, or skipping, not even dietary rules or geneologies). I have been meaning to do this since childhood, because, beyond the religious aspect, I feel that the Bible (or at least some big chunks of it) is essential r ...more

When you cut away any socio-political feelings you may have about it, there's no denying it's sheer importance in the literature world. Not even Shakespeare comes close.
As a pragmatic spiritual guide for living, it also can't be topped. So, so much of Western and Eastern culture is based in it's concepts. Love it or hate it, but you're probably a product of it.
If you're a believer you probably regard this as a five-star bit of literature. Well, I'm a b ...more
I read this twice. The second time I read it was on a challenge from a youth group leader. I earned a leather jacket from mexico for it. Still have it. The first time I read it was because it was a classic. Here, I thought, was a book that was known the world over. It caused disputes and wars, people killing each other over it, politics argued using it as its basis, and referenced by many a literature around the world. For this alone it was a book worth reading. The beginning bit was a a bit ted ...more
الانسانية ترى يسوع الناصري مولودا كالفقراء عائشا كالمساكين مهانا كالضعفاء
مصلوبا كالمجرمين ...
فتبكيه وترثيه وتندبه
وهذا كل ما تفعله لتكريمه.
منذ تسعة عشر جيلا والبشر يعبدون الضعف بشخص يسوع،
ويسوع كان قويا ولكنهم لا يفهمون معنى القوة الحقيقية.
ماعاش يسوع مسكينا خائفا ولم يمت شاكيا متوجعا
بل عاش ثائرا وصلب متمردا ومات جبارا.
لم يكن يسوع طائرا مكسور الجناحين
بل كان عاصفة هوجاء تكسر بهبوبها جميع الاجنحة المعوجة.
لم يجيء يسوع من وراء الشفق الأزرق ليجعل الالم رمزا للحياة
بلجاء ليجعل الحياة رمزا للحق والحرية.
