Hilarious. Great translation of the first 5 books of the Bible with an eye for explaining the parts that everyone glosses over and ignores. The ridiculous idea of taking this text literally is made abundantly clear in some hilarious prose and commentary. Without attacking faith, it shows that the idea of either legislating cherry-picked versus or of taking the text literally are both doomed enterprises based on delusion.

Funny and true depiction of some of the aspects of the old testament that seem ridiculous when told with such irreverence. If nothing else, it is an amusing read. Makes it easier to read the beginning of the Bible, for sure.

A humourous and easy reading, chapter-by-chapter review of the ridiculousness and hypocrisy of the first five books of the old testament (the Torah). Points out much of the silly and conflicting teachings of this ancient mythology.

A really funny book. The literal / modern day translation of the first five books of the bible sheds amusing light on what the Good Book really says.

Please realize this is an ironically named book. The easiest read of the Old Testament and now I know a lot more about Moses. And animal sacrifice.

I had quite honestly forgotten just how ridiculous a lot of old testament stuff is... Pretty entertaining.

I was really hoping for more analysis not just a "Coles Notes" retelling of the bible. I got about a quarter of the way through and then couldn't even bring myself to keep reading it.
