Holy Bible – Best God Damned Version – Genesis, by Steve Ebling (2013)

Warning: If you are one who takes the Bible as being absolute Gospel (pardon the pun), this book will most likely offend you.

However, if you are willing to embrace the various quirks and foibles of the Book of Genesis–and you’re not afraid of a little satire and profanity–you’ll probably laugh. A lot.

This book has an infectious, storytelling tone and rhythm that had me laughing out loud, a lot more than a commentary on Genesis normally would.

Author Steve Ebling admits to being an Atheist, which doesn’t mean he can’t study scripture. He makes some valid points, but mainly he has a ball with his analysis of Genesis, and the joy was infectious. In the preface, he talks of his plan to do continue until he’s aimed his contradiction-finding, fun-making guns at the entire Bible.

I hope he does. That would be a fun and interesting read.

B.A. in Literature, Minor in Film Theory and Criticism, thus meaning all I’m trained is to write blog posts here. Neptune is my favorite planet–it vents methane into the solar system like my brother does. I think Chicken McNuggets look like Pennsylvania, Illinois, and Indiana. There are times when I’m medicated, which is why I wrote about McNuggets. Buy some today and tell me I’m wrong! Anyway, Beyond that: mammal, Floridian, biped.Good Night, and Good Luck. Besos, tom
