My praise for Bart D. Ehrman goes far beyond acknowledging his scholarship, he has done me an immense favor. Although baptized as a child, I am not a Christian and have always been made to feel that it was my fault. After listening to Jesus, Interrupted; I now understand why I am not a Christian and why I do not believe. The difference is that I can now articulate, with some degree of authority, just why I disbelieve. The coup de grace for me came when Bart asked the rhetorical question: Just how does one decide to believe one miracle and not another. Knowledge is a wonderful thing, especially if it inoculates a person from the mind-virus that is religion.
The gullible and people who still believe in Santa.
I couldn't listen to enough to answer this question
The character they call Jesus
Yeah, save your money, buy anything by Bart D. Ehrman, and yep, almost forgot, Santa isn't real either. Don't you get it? The Urantia Book is a 20th Century, biblical forgery. Nothing new and revelatory message here. Sorry folks, just keep moving on. Oh, does anybody want to buy a slightly water-stained 1980, Urantia Book?
Evidently, this audio book is one long list of things that Greta is angry about. I too am an atheist, but I'm not angry or even sorry. Sure, I am tired of Christians (theists) flaunting their religion in my face and I too am tired of seeing the cross displayed as a piece of jewelry (this was an instrument used for torture and death, if not performed on Jesus then it was most certainly inflicted on countless others), however, it doesn't make me angry, just sad. I am sad that so many people claim to follow a man known only as Jesus, a man that nobody can prove even existed, and yet these same people can vanquish all other non-believers to eternal hell and torment while they, in turn, will enjoy every imaginable luxury in heaven. How dare they. However, with this said, it's still a sad excuse for a book simply to lists all the things that makes one angry. I am sorry that I could only listen to 20 minutes of this book before turning it off. Enjoy yourself Greta.
