I could go on forever about how I was stuffed to the brim with propaganda my entire life in Catholic school, but instead, or at least for now until I write something real, just watch this whole video:

I've been avoiding listing this one because there is a part of me that screams, "Why didn't you give this book 5 stars!?!?!" Certainly, that part of me has a point. I've read this book more than any other book save two - the Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings. Generally, any book I find worth reading more than 4 or 5 times I also find worth giving 5 stars to. And, in terms of the power and sophistication of the stories contained within, the book is probably unmatched as a collection of short stori ...more

No one whose testes are crushed or whose member is cut off shall be admitted into the congregation of the Lord. -Deuteronomy 23:2

Noah, a man of the soil, proceeded to plant a vineyard. When he drank some of its wine, he became drunk and lay uncovered inside his tent. Ham, the father of Canaan, saw his father's nakedness and told his two brothers outside. But Shem and Japheth took a garment and laid it across their shoulders; then they walked in backward and covered their father's nakedness. Thei

Usually I like epic fantasy, but this one was rather underwhelming. Extra star for Doré's gorgeous illustrations.

This rather long book is uneven in places, but when it's good, it's good.

Interesting note, of all the people I know who have read the Bible in detail from cover to cover, the majority are atheists.

The King James version is the only English translation that maintains this great piece of literature in an artistic form. It's all about the meter! As one of the greater works of fiction in human history, this book is like a collection of story templates. A rich linguistic tradition has descended from this particular translation, and the only thing keeping The Bible from re

Recommended to Ais by: The Pastors, Teachers, Parents, Family and Friends who all want me to grow up in the faith of our LORD Jesus Christ - Thank You for putting me on my track!
I learned that everyone's a sinner - even me! This Book changed my life litterally because this is my religion. I'm dead serious worship this Book. Everyone should read this LONG book to read the miracles of God AND HOW TRUE THEY ARE! Everything in this book is true and everyone should get around to reading the chapter called "Matthew".

Minun kansiversioni ei ole tämä - minun on sellainen kovakantinen ja punainen - mutta tämä sopii hyvin. Sujuva käännös jonka aion lukea uudestaan ja uudestaan :)

This seminal work of science fiction vacillates between page-turning fight sequences and dreary legal analysis. Despite some unreliable narration and unresolved plot points, the authors' God proves to be a multi-dimensional character, learning much from his vindictive and petulant behavior in the first part. By the end you're shedding your own tears of blood for his tragic demise at the hands of a mostly unsympathetic audience. The psychedelic epilogue ameliorated this somewhat--dragons with sev ...more

I know what you're going to say, "This book's boring," or, "That book doesn't count." Well I've got news for you. Give me a book that is different, no matter how many times you read it. Give me a book that includes stories of men from over 5,000 years ago. Give me a book that can feed you like no Grandma ever could. Give me a book that I can read every day of my life, but never grow tired of it. Give me a book that has the greatest love story ever told. Give me a book that will always show you s ...more

Funny story. I am in no way religious. I'm actually going to read this because I believe that before i pronounce myself as Atheist that I should know all of the things I'm rejecting and fully understand them. If a miracle happens (and I hear God just loves to deal those things out) and I actually 'find God' through reading the Bible then I will pronounce myself a believer and go on living my life the same way I do now.

In my opinion, the King James version of the Bible is the only way to read the bible. I fully believe that everyone should read the bible like any other book. Do not get lost in one denomination's translation of the bible, but read it for yourself and find your own meaning.

There is one book I'm always return to. Sometimes for long reads, often for short reads. I love this book, it's my life and faith.

Usually I read it in Norwegian (and nynorsk) - this was the only cover I could find that looked somewhat familiar...

Not bad. Bit slow in parts, not much character development. Could have used a better editor.

THE Book of Life.

I've read and been preached to about different parts of the Bible. I am now reading it all the way through.

no rating - this is an important text regardles if you're a skeptic or a true believer.

Violence, poetry, romance, profundity. This book has it all. And being written in 1611, it very well could be the cornerstone of Modern English.

The story of God stretching out his hands to a disbelieving and contrary people.
Danijel Brestovac


Prva Mojzesova Knjiga

1Mz 2:18- bog Jehova je tudi rekel: "Ni dobro, da je človek še naprej sam. Naredili mu bom pomočnico, ki ga bo dopolnjevala."

1Mz 11:6- zatem je Jehova rekel: "Vsi so eno ljudstvo in vsi govorijo en jezik in glej, česa in se lotili. Zdaj jim nič od tega, kar se morda namenijo, ne bo nemogoče.

1Mz 11:7- Dajmo, stopimo dol in jim zmešajmo jezik, da ne bodo mogli razumeti jezika drug drugega.

I have no idea where this Bible came from, and it's likely anyone who could tell me has died.

Names written inside:
Emmaual Cook
W.G. Cook
Elmer Whaley
Zach
Grace Dunkin
Zuckerman
Orb
Irma Cook
Winfred Jones
(It's pure speculation concerning the names, as they are faded and illegible.)

It's an ancient novel filled with acts of murder, corruption, prostitution, misogyny, homophobia, bestiality, incest, ethnic cleansing, human trafficking, cruelty, senseless dogmatism, theological contradictions, antiquated mysticism and moral deception. It is often read to children on weekends.

the language is a little blah compared with the KJV, but that's to be expected with such a simple translation. The good thing about it is how easy it is to read and understand. There sure is some far out weirdo stuff in here.
