Sintesi dell'editore

The Bible remains the best-selling book of all time, believed by nearly two billion Christians and Jews to be divinely inspired. But in this hard-hitting new book, author Robert J. Hutchinson proposes that it is actually much more than this. The ideas enshrined in the Bible, he says, triggered a revolution in human thought and established the moral and philosophical foundation for Western civilization, from the recognition of basic human rights and belief in limited government to authentic feminism and the development of empirical science. He explains that it is more a "culture-war" book than a work of religious apologetics.

"A dynamite demolition of the biblical 'experts' who tell us the holy book is untrustworthy and immoral to boot." (Robert Spencer, author of Religion of Peace: Why Christianity Is and Islam Isn't)
"Robert Hutchinson is a great reporter and a great defender of Holy Scripture. Hutchinson has mounted an urgent, necessary, and sprightly defense." (Robert Moynihan, Ph.D., medieval studies, Yale)

these should be labeled the right wing musings of

I downloaded all of the politically correct series, but I am still waiting on facts, not rant sessions against liberals. these books need FACTS.

Skeptic? Take a listen.

A positive presentation for Christianity's contribution to science, slavery, and many other hot buttons throughout history until the present.

Not PC but more than likely true

Great answer to PC critics. I enjoyed the pointing out that the famous contemporary critics of God and Christ are not scientists - generally not more than commentators. This book is a good companion to Lee Strobel's book " A Case for Christ".

anti gay, anti abortion propaganda...

Wow, where do I start? this book tries to prove the bible right, but it hardly makes any valid points. Some historical facts are right, loads are wrong.

This is what the book tells us:
everything in the bible is right. anything that proves it's not is wrong.

atheists are evil, they are compared to Hitler and Stalin

all other religions (except judaism) is wrong and primitive. most are evil...

anything that is good is because of the bible

gay people are winning and wroooong, same thing with abortion and contraception

anything bad the church has ever done is justified with that they fought something worse.

and much more.

would not recommend this to anyone wanting to learn anything.

An Excellent Audiobook!

While the content of this audiobook is excellent, I must confess that it was the superb reading of the text by Tom Weiner that enthralled me. If every single audiobook in my expansive library could be read by Mr. Weiner, I would be exceedingly pleased! This of course cannot be, but it doesn't hurt to wish it so.

Nevertheless, Mr. Hutchinson did a great job presenting many evidences to corroborate the authenticity of the Bible. The self same book that has for many years, offered me both strength and encouragement!

A shame

MUCH of what this book says is true. However it is presented in such a judgemental, biased, uncaring way it is unlikely anyone but the zealots will agree with it.
Also a shame that those who wrote and performed this book will see this review as a triumph and victory when it is, unfortunately, quite the opposite.

Springboard

Although this book just skims the surface of a variety of topics ranging from science to slavery, it provides a good springboard for further study. This book deals head on with many arguments made against the Bible regarding it's accuracy and morality. It especially provides key contexts for Biblical mandates in the Old Testament as well as the prevailing culture of civilizations during the Old and New Testaments. A good listen overall.

Contrived babble

Would you try another book written by Robert J. Hutchinson or narrated by Tom Weiner?

unlikely

What could Robert J. Hutchinson have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Cut out all the misinformation, back up claims with actual facts, cut out petty personal smears on other people with different opinions,

Would you be willing to try another one of Tom Weiner’s performances?

His pretend voices were irritating but on the whole OK

What character would you cut from The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible?

N/A

Any additional comments?

Opinions are all very well, as are assertions but unless they're backed up with fact and constructed in valid logic they don't carry any weight. The "I know because I know because I know because I know" approach isn't very intelligent

Debunking critical thinking.

This is a difficult one to review really as the title isn't what one would think the content to be.

If like myself, you like to look at both sides of a discussion to form an opinion based on critical thinking then this book falls firmly on the side of Christian creationist doctrine. That's absolutely fine however, I was expecting a little humour based debate on the bible from the perspective of those big bang theorists, as the title would suggest.

The true title should read something like this...
"Debunking the none Christians views on the Bible by cherry picking the narrative".

The author goes to great lengths to point out the various groups who cherry pick their arguments by doing exactly the same and, much like his opposition, uses questionable interpretation of language to support his side of the argument.

Worth reading? Possibly. I do feel more could be gained by watching Monty Pythons life of Brian because, its as historically accurate as 'some' chapters of the good book which, in the authors words, were written one thousand years after the events portrayed.

I'm not a Darwinian big bang believer because, in my experience, nothing good comes from an explosion and, like religion, there isn't any scientific evidence to support either theory, one way or another. Both are human constructs because some people need something to believe in and others as a means of control.
I don't have the answers but personally, I believe if we are excellent to each other we'll move on to somewhere much more pleasant, if we plot world domination in a Klaus Schwabe style evolution of humankind, then there's a special kind of place for you mentioned in the bible. Earth!
