Publisher's Summary

For centuries the gospels have been cherished devotional literature, and under the guidance of preachers and priests, they’ve been understood as reliable depictions of Jesus. But even the most devout Christians stumble across sayings of Jesus that don’t sound quite right. In fact - if we’re honest - some of them are alarming. I discovered a few of these verses when I was a kid, but Jesus was our lord and savior, so I didn’t let it bother me too much.

a

How can this not be food for thought? What are the implications of this major downside of the gospels? It takes a certain level of bravery - frankly, curiosity and courage are required - to examine everything that Jesus taught. This audiobook is designed to help with that adventure. (David Madison)

How dare you!

This book is heresy, blasphemy, the very work of the devil himself… And I loved every word of it. Great work!

Thought provoking.

Good information and thought provoking. Most excellent choice for a narrator and on audiobook that’s huge. I could listen to Seth Andrews read a phone book.

Wonderful exploration of my own problems

I live in a very red state where I am constantly assailed by exhortations to follow Jesus and be saved. The problem I saw first was that few of the sects of Christianity understand the idea of "being saved" as the same thing. I actually read Bible as a teen, and then and there, realized, "This stuff can't be true."
I've done some investigation since then and realized my first impression had been correct. This book puts succinctly both the contradictions I had noticed and explained many more.
If you're an atheist, this book will support and expand your beliefs, If you're a Christian, please read this book to better understand your faith. If it's strong it should hold up under scrutinization and if it doesn't, maybe you should rethink things.

Very good! Very easy to listen to and understand!

This book is scholarly without being dense and dry. The author draws on many excellent sources and makes those sources understandable.
