"And entertaining view of what Genesis REALLY says! More honest for the general population than the actual words in Genesis having been translated from the original several times in an attempt to convince the world that it's more than a myth :-)"

"After having read and liked the tweets of J.R. Eldridge, couldn't wait to read this book.
Thankfully, he gave me a free copy to read and review.
It's funny, a bit silly and really does make you think on how messed up the whole Christmas story is.
