PAPERBACK MARKETING STATEMENT
The Bible is not the word of God.
Biblical Nonsense is a broad look at the tremendous problem of associating divinity with the world's most popular book. This part-philosophical, part-scientific overview explores the Bible's divine treachery, scientific mistakes, historical errors, false prophecies, and comical absurdities. Biblical Nonsense also expands beyond these standard reasons for skepticism by tackling the rationale behind the emergence and perpetuation of Christianity, psychological and sociocultural reasons that drive Christians to cling to their beliefs, and illogical methods of argumentation invoked in the defense of the Bible.
Author Dr. Jason Long is a former Christian who condenses the most significant biblical problems into this single volume. Unlike other books in the field that delve into only one topic, this manuscript, comprehensible even to those who have never opened a Bible, is a full-fledged attempt to demonstrate that God's supposed word is a product of human minds, not divine inspiration. Dr. Long's fresh experiences in the church and advanced levels of educational enlightenment make him the perfect individual to present this vehemently unpopular, yet undeniably appealing topic.
HARDCOVER MARKETING STATEMENT
Dr. Jason Long's Biblical Nonsense is a thorough scientific and philosophical analysis of the Bible's credibility. While billions of people around the world have merely assumed the solid validity of the Bible, Biblical Nonsense tells the contrasting, rarely exposed side of the story. While the Church scarcely makes the decision to cover these controversial issues, Dr. Long presents a series of profound questions regarding the Bible's scientific mistakes and historical inaccuracies that effectively discredit its divine authenticity.
Biblical Nonsense covers such topics as the feasibility of Noah's flood, God's stance on slavery, the position of women in ancient Hebrew society, contradictions committed among the Bible's fallible authors, the historicity of Jesus, contemporary Christian household conditioning, God's millions of murderous acts, and the imminent downfall of Christianity. Biblical Nonsense is one of the best complete, concise, and easily understandable accounts of the Bible's mistakes.
