I wasn't going to review the Bible. I wasn't ever going to review the Bible. For one thing, it's a very politically charged move to make. For another, I've probably only technically read maybe less than 10% of the whole thing. A few verses here and there and the entire book of Esther does not a comp...

This review will likely not change any opinions about this book. It will perhaps give anyone interested a look into my particular worldview.

This isn't a 4-star work; it's a 4-star translation.The NIV is basically the standard Biblical translation. I suspect the vast majority of people use it today (the King James having likely fallen out of favour with the younger crowd), and it stands up to such scrutiny. It is, of course, not without ...

There's a reason why Christians love to recite verse: taken out of context, much of this is compelling and insightful and beautiful. In context, however, it's a big old mess. It is exactly as if people had picked up a bunch of random writings written by different people at different times and tried ...
