Not gay enough
Not my best work
DO NOT READ THIS BOOK. I am simply treembling as I ttype this review.... But I will type throughjh the sobs for the sake of warning others freom readingf it. It starts off with this fella right, super lovable he’s like a baby in a manger he’s all nice to people and heals them and stufffh. And honenztly I got kinda attached to him you know? I felt like he grew up with me, I felt like we were friends....... So imagine my HORROR right, when they KILL HIM OFF????? Are you KIDDING me????? I was NOT p...
Made me go to therapy for 5 years, could be gayer.
Unbelivabe characters, poor writing skills. This fantasy book can't even keep the internal logic of it's world going. And the god character is just such a unrelenting villian that it's a real downer.
This sucks. It doesn't have enough frogs. And. It could be gayer.
Since this is actually 66 books in one, perhaps I should review them as I go. This is my second go-round with the Bible, reading it cover to cover, but I'm trying to do it in one year this time rather than the nearly four years it took me last time. [EDIT NOTE: Okay, so it's taking me more than a year. We'll go for a year and a half.] I refuse to review this as a theological text, even though it is for me and that's why I'm re-reading it, as this is a book review website and not a church forum.
A terrible book. Badly written with awful pacing. Trivial details are explained in mind-numbing detail, while actual important questions about what is God and the afterlife are ignored. The morals are inconsistent, incoherent and often abhorrent. It advocates genocide, sexism, bigotry, murder, massacre and hatred of everyone who disagrees. This book has no relevance for modern days and should be confined to the dustbin of history.
It's strange that one of the most important, most dangerous, and most misused books in the world could be so mind-numbingly boring. Also, anyone who claims they live their life by the bible should actually read it and see exactly what it is they claim to do. I'm guessing most people ignore 90% of what it says to do. Really, you could just collect everything Jesus says into one slender manual and cut the rest, since Jesus's sermons are the only parts anyone should really be proud of. The rest of
Poorly written fiction.
I liked it. It was great fiction. I enjoyed the parts with Jesus and his twelve boyfriends and the drama between them. I do think that Jesus was a little bit overpowered. Otherwise it was great.
Spoiler alert- J Dog dies. Really sad. Mary got knocked up by god and basically her child is god. Rated 1 star, not very funny.
My review: Life.What I am learning from this book: Salvation. Life. Joy. Truth. Hope. Courage.
fuck this science fiction propoganda
Disappointing. I wish this book was about Shaq.
Worst fantasy/speculative fiction novel of all time. Although, I guess it is GDAF; there's a veritable shit ton of murder. I mean, seriously, what kind of microuniverse was the Ark? Sure, turning water into wine would be a badass party trick, but physics!Don't even get me started on how a population formed from two people (both with belly buttons even though they were "created"...) that had 3 sons. Meh.
the manga was betteralso, if anyone has a link to Jesus x Judas BDSM fanfiction, I'd like to see it
Not enough gay but then....."Peter turned and saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them, the one who also had leaned back against him during the supper and had said, “Lord, who is it that is going to betray you?” 21 When Peter saw him, he said to Jesus, “Lord, what about this man?” Jesus said to him, “If it is my will that he remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow me!” So the saying spread abroad among the brothers[b] that this disciple was not to die; yet Jesus did not say...
If I had taken notes while reading I would have a lot more to say. I was actually reluctant to reading the bible when I was younger as I was actually worried I would be beliver. However, this book can make an atheist out of anybody. It's pretty obvious to me that these books were written at different times by different people, not inspired by one God (unless he's got many, many personalities), who have at least one thing in common, namely controlling other people using fear, although maybe for d...
Needs more lesbians
not gay enough, i can't ship in peace.and the fiction over here? no, ma'am, i need something like 2012 movie.
Very boring. Wouldn't read it again. Kind of dragged on. I was really waiting for the Jesus to die part but it was kind of anti-climatic. A lot of family history that I can't keep up with. Lots of plot holes. This book is a mess. 5/5 if it was a murder novel but it's religious fiction.
At 20% JoshuaAnother deeply depressing book. I'd compare it best to violent computer games nobody ever wants kids to play. For some bizarre reason, it's ok that cities are destroyed (down to the last donkey, never mind the children), so long as God is on your side. The God in this book is heartless and vengeful, and even stoops so low as blackmailing Joshua towards the end! I'll continue helping you to kill people and take their land and wealth for yourselves so long as you have nothing to do wi...
First of, I'm going to analyse a few of the many self-contradictions and plotholes in the most influential book ever written. I suggest most die-hard fanatics to avoid reading this, otherwise you'll be offended as hell (no pun intentioned).So let me get this straight:1. God, THE perfect entity, created humans in his own image, after his likeness (or shall I say "their", as, quoting Genesis 1:26: Then God said, “Let us make man[h] in OUR image, after OUR likeness." After all, he didn't say "my" i...
The best English translation of the Bible available.The goal of the translators was to make this as readable as the NIV and as literal as the NASB. If that goal could ever have been achieved (translation in itself really is a difficult task), God used the translators of the ESV to do it.The one place I have an issue with is Daniel 9:25. It seems clear from the text that "there shall be seven weeks. Then for sixty-two weeks it shall be built again..." should have been translated, "there shall be
Read the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe instead. Less incest and rape makes for a more enjoyable story.
honestly bland, disappointing. also the first part was a tad bit rape-y. wouldn't recommend.
