Kurzbeschreibung

The author of this book, Brian Baker, was a 'born again' fundamentalist Christian for seventeen years. For ten of those years he was the founding pastor of one of Australia's largest churches (1979-89). Following the failure of his marriage, he resigned from the ministry and then spent the following few years seriously examining his faith and the veracity of the Bible. Finally he came to the conclusion that his Christian beliefs were seriously flawed and that the Bible is entirely the result of human invention, imaginations and myths passed down from generation to generation. As the Bible is then based on 'hearsay' and written by at least 40 different authors over a period of up to 1,600 years, none of whom were eyewitnesses to the events they recorded, it cannot substantiate the claim that it was 'inspired by God.'

The result of Brian's search for evidence caused a personal transformation from believer to realist, rationalist, skeptic and atheist. He published his first book - From Faith to Reason - in 2009 which contains the reasons why he no longer believes in the existence of God, angels, demons, the devil, heaven, hell or an afterlife.

In this book - Nonsense from the Bible - Brian uses the Bible texts to demonstrate their inaccuracies, inconsistencies, contradictions and fantasies. He deals with major issues which are widely believed and accepted as factual events such as the Creation story, the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus and the prophecies concerning Jesus. Chapters are also devoted to the question of the second coming of Jesus and Christian Family values. Brian also totally invalidates the so-called 'power of prayer' and the claims that God heals the sick.

This would be a 'hard read' for many Christians who totally believe that the Bible is literally 'The Word of God' and accept it as absolute truth. Brian also believed that for all those years but over a period of time and investigation by seeking evidence other than the Bible he was able to accept that he had been deceived and deluded - or as he now says, 'Once I was blind - but now I see!'

This is an 'easy' read for those who may question their own faith as it provides some convincing information concerning the validity of the Bible.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Great for beginning doubters from an enlightened former pastor 2. September 2012
Von David C. Mack - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a good introduction to biblical criticism and a quick and easy read for doubting pew potatoes written by a former celebrated pastor who has examined the evidence after leaving the pulpit. As one who has read much on the subject since retirement, my only minor quibble is that I wish the author had briefly mentioned some of the midrashic elements in the Gospels wherein their authors appear to have borrowed from the Old Testament when presenting some of the alleged events of an earthly Jesus. I also thought there could have been more emphasis on the fact that the Gospel writers were clearly writing long after the Old Testament "prophesies" so it is easy to claim something is prophecy by manufacturing events to appear they were predicted in the past - though the author does do a nice job discussing why popular prophesies were not really predicting what many fundamentalists claim. Despite my more advanced reading on the subject, I nonetheless found this an enjoyable read. Since I am now blind, I appreciate this is available on Kindle because I use the Amazon Kindle text-to-speech app for the blind to hear books read to me now. Anyway, this serves as a fairly good primer and is recommended for newbies to critical biblical study and those interested in hearing from a former pastor.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Easy to read and understand 7. September 2012
Von Pepper Lim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
This is a good follow up to Brian's previous book 'From Faith To Reason'. Brian presents his case of nonsense from the bible in a clear yet light hearted way. You might be surprised or even be angry at Brian for saying the bible is filled with nonsense but the evidence is right there for all to see.

I enjoyed the many examples given by him. He makes it easy for the reader by underlining the actual verses in question while offering them in full context. Readers can read the actual bible passages in this book without referring to the bible. This book is by no means exhaustive. Nevertheless, it is a very enjoyable read.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Pretty good 30. Januar 2013
Von Elizabeth Echavarria - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
This is an interesting read particularly how the author breaksdown passages in the bible and attempt to discredit it. I am familiar with many of the bible passages presented in this book but the author forced me to look at these passages from a different perspective. He pointed out some facts within the bible that I have never thought to question.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A great book 2. November 2012
Von Addy3 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As a former Muslim I was drawn to this book to understand the ex Christian perspective. The book clearly spells out the lies, contradictions, bizarre claims and incredulous claims of the Bible. There's very little venom in Bakers criticism of the Bible,which considering the fact he spent most of his life indoctrinating others with its content, does him credit. He's definitely done his research to expose the fictitious claims of the Christian faith. It's well worth a read and I hope its message resonates with readers to help free them from theshackles of a pointless ideology.

4.0 von 5 Sternen The truth will set you free 31. Januar 2013
Von Duffman - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
....which is a bible quote, probably the main contribution of the bible, the many memorable phrases now in common use. Baker's book includes many Old Testament quotes which are depressingly nasty but for the most part it is an easy read with plenty of useful skewering of the more ludicrous aspects of the bible. For those with a background in moderate Christian denominations such as Anglicanism, there is no need to discuss why e.g. the creation of the world and Noah's flood are just stories. But Baker draws on first hand knowledge of the literal beliefs of faster growing fundamentalist denominations. His experience in such a church is probably the most interesting part of the book. I have little doubt there are more polished books on the topic but would recommend it to anyone who has been raised in the echo chamber of a fundamentalist church but has enough independent thought to search for other viewpoints.
