|Ken's Guide to the Bible Price: $7.95 ||
What a hilarious book! Complete with side pictures for easy reference (and these little artistic wonders are worth the price of the book themselves), Ken Smith explores the bible, both old and new testament, book by painful book. A great way to learn something new, not to mention a great coffee table book.
Anyone who thinks that the Bible is a boring hodgepodge of mythology best left to the dusty pews of the church has just been proven wrong. Take a look beyond the "Saul begat Sam begat Simon, etc, ad nauseum" and you will find that the holiest of holy books is filled with more sex and violence than the worst of today's movies and television. The humorous and informative Ken's Guide to the Bible lets you skip all the boring parts and go straight to the good stuff.
Did you know that God doesn't like anyone who sweats? Or that one angel slaughtered 500,000 people in one day? Or that the book of Songs is better suited for sexual pillow talk than religious reading? Ken points out these odd facts and more in an easy to follow format. There are icons throughout the guide to help you find what you looking for with ease, be it violence, sex, weirdness or twisted truths. With this book in hand, you'll be more than prepared to fend off any of those pushy Christians by letting them know that Jesus Christ himself was all for slavery, beating your kids and thought that women should be kept in their place. So, grab your copy of the Holy Bible and prepare to delve into a pit of decadence and corruption that isn't mentioned in the Sunday-morning sermons."
