Kurzbeschreibung

NOT FOR KIDS (or iPad or Nook)!

What began as a private online joke among interfaith friends quickly skyrocketed to meet the demands of the thousands of fans and critics of the controversial work. Within hours, the book became the #1 Bestseller in Amazon.com's Humor & Religion category! Combining actual Bible verses with more than 30 whimsical original illustrations, Awkward Moments uses humor to encourage people from all walks of life to think, perhaps for the first time, about how the Bible continues to shape our culture.


BEWARE - NOT FOR KIDS! This is definitely not your average children's Bible! If you thought the bestseller "Go The F**k To Sleep" was inappropriate for story-time with kids, you haven't seen anything yet! Leave it to the Bible! Foreskins Fetishes? Unicorn Murders? Boiled Babies? Messiah, MIA? Selling Daughters? Cannibalism Club? Genetic Breakthroughs? Demonic Bacon? Gagged Women? Jihad Jesus? You bet! And much more!


From the opening foreword by acclaimed author David G. McAffee, to the challenging commentaries and interactive games at the end, Awkward Moments Children's Bible is much more than an irreverent book for your coffee table! Readers of all faiths will find themselves laughing out loud while being encouraged to think about the Bible in a new way.


Let’s be honest - there are some things in the Good Book that are just... awkward! There are verses we'd like to forget or that have been changed throughout the centuries. There are many verses you’ve never heard before in church, let alone seen in your average children’s Bible! Not to mention the verses that have been added over the centuries!


Most people were raised in the faith chosen by their family. Young children learn a few Bible stories taken out of context and accept them without question. (On what basis could they possibly question their parents or church leaders?) After decades of repetition and tradition, it's understandable that we might put our beliefs on auto-pilot and just nod as a pastor repeats the verses and ideas that are already familiar and comfortable to us. It's no wonder that recent studies show an incredible lack of Biblical knowledge among Christians - 55% unable to even name the four Gospels of the New Testament - the very foundation of Christianity!


The Goal? Awkward Moments encourages readers to really understand what is in their Bibles and think for themselves about the context of Biblical teaching. The 32 color illustrations and included commentaries will likely challenge some readers to reflect on how religion continues to shape the lives and culture of future generations. If readers happen to laugh out loud and enjoy the interactive puzzles and games in the mean time - it’s just an added bonus!

Über den Autor

HORUS GILGAMESH was raised Catholic before being "born again" in college when he began following a calling toward full-time ministry. Early on, his efforts were focused on youth evangelism and Biblical literacy around the world. When he was on a missions trip to Africa, a fearless young boy approached, pleading, "Chakula? Maji?"- the Swahili words for "food" and "water." Unfortunately, Horus had no food or water to offer the poor child - only Bibles. A few days later, Horus met a humanitarian relief worker from Spain who shared five simple words of wisdom that would change his life forever - "Empty stomachs have no ears." Horus realized that he was not meeting the very real needs of the people he was hoping to help - he was struggling to finding a purpose in his own life, as a self righteous servant of his Creator. To many Christians, the most important gift you could ever give to a man is a chance at eternal life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ - the Living Water. But what about this life? There are billions who would give anything for a drink of regular old H2O.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A must read 9. Dezember 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Shows - nicely illustrated - in god's own words, how much moral progress humanity has made since biblical times. Alas!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Super Weihnachtsgeschenk! 5. Januar 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Das Buch habe ich einer befreundeten Familie geschenkt. Es enthält die richtige Portion Blut, Gemetzel und Hass, um zu verdeutlichen, was in den Bibelteilen AT und NT steht.
Daher rühren auch die "awkward moments", in denen man seinem Kind erklären muss, weshalb so viele Menschen dieses Werk (also die Bibel) für die Grundlage unserer "christilich-abendländischen Kultur" halten. Mir war neu, wie hasserfüllt die Predigten des Jesus waren, das wird in dem Buch sehr schön "rübergebracht". Alles in allem hat die beschenkte Familie sich gefreut. Dass das Buch nicht wirklich für Kinder ist - wie die "richtige" Bibel auch - versteht sich quasi von selbst.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining and thought-provoking for Christians and non-Christians alike! 16. Oktober 2013
Von David G. McAfee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Awkward Moments uses humor as an important educational tool, challenging believers and non-believers alike to really think about the Bible's contents and historical context. The book encourages readers to dig deeper into their Bibles while simultaneously making them wish they hadn't. This is much more than an irreverent gag gift - it tackles the age-old problem of Biblical ignorance in a surprisingly powerful way!

- David G. McAfee, author of "Mom, Dad, I'm an Atheist: The Guide to Coming Out as a Non-believer" and "Disproving Christianity and other Secular Writings"

5.0 von 5 Sternen Horus and Agnes are my heroes! 3. Dezember 2013
Von Anne M. Thorson - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I ordered a three-pack of this book through its creators; Having their signatures on it somehow makes it feel more "blessed."
From the verses they've chosen, to the delightfully clever artwork, to the thoughtful annotations for each verse, to the foreword by God: Everything about this book has made me a happier, more educated reader. Though tongue-in-cheek, it reinforces the conclusion that the Bible is one crazy, whacked-out piece of fiction.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love It! 29. Oktober 2013
Von David I. Schultz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a great parody of a children's bible that has illustrations and bible passages to go with them. This, however, has some of the nasty bits that are never taught to children, or in church for that matter. Anxiously awaiting Volume #2. Also waiting for the new Awkward Moments in the Book of Mormon to be completed.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Bringing the jaw-dropping stories of the Bible, to the masses! 25. Oktober 2013
Von D. Bristow - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
This book is excellent at getting your mind working over the details of all the crazy stories in the Bible! It's absolutely worth the buy for atheists and christians alike!
