it was amazing
Read in February, 2009

Thomas Paine gives two analyses of the Old and New Testement. THe first one writen hastily being that he was afraid to be imprisoned and thought he might not have another chance. It was writen without a Bible in hand, but still very accurate, just more general and with no referances. This makes the first have more to the point. In the second part Painegoes back with Biblein hand and points out every example sometimes verse by verse. This kind of care is needed to truely disproof the Bible validity, but once you get the idea all of he kind of runs it into the ground. He could make his point without making so many referances, but he is just trying to be thorough. Over all good book, but if you think that reading some of the hum-drum parts of the Bible are boring than reading someone analysis those parts can be tasking at times. Very eye-opening.
