Synopsis

A survey of sex as it is depicted in the scriptures.

Der Verlag über das Buch

Why is the Good Book so bizarre, sexual and violent?
When first published in 1985 by Madalyn Murray O'Hair (who has since mysteriously disappeared) and her Atheist Foundation, The X-Rated Bible caused a national furor, complete with scathing newspaper editorials, talk show outrage and praise from publications like Playboy.

Now that we approach the millennium, Ben Akerley's controversial book has been enlarged and revised, and its new printing deserves a more considered reassessment from the national press. Is it, as Playboy wrote, "a witty but scholarly examination and analysis of all the sexual activity that fundamentalists tend to overlook in the King James Bible." Or are the weird and steamy actions that occur in the bible always righteously "mentioned as evil and usually punished as evil," as propounded by the outraged right-wing organization, Morality in Media?

In its first incarnation, no major book distributor agreed to carry The X-Rated Bible. But today, the chains have gotten a little bolder, and all have agreed to carry a book an editorial in the Tulsa World wished would "wind up on the back shelves of a dark warehouse."

Advance Praise for the new, Feral House edition of The X-Rated Bible:

"Everything you wanted to know about the holiness-horniness nexus, but they wouldn't tell you." — George Carlin

"Not since God exposed his rear parts to Moses has the Bible reared its exposed parts to such raunchy scrutiny." — Paul Krassner, The Realist

Format: Taschenbuch
"The X-Rated Bible," a survey of sex in the Holy Bible, is simply one of the best books on the market. It should be mandatory reading, particularly in consideration of the fact that the "Good Book" is pushed worldwide as "God's Word." As "X-Rated's" author, Ben Akerley, points out in detail, the Old Testament is full of sexual perversion, not only on the part of "infidels" but also on that of the "chosen people," whom most people have been led to believe were godly, pious individuals who never did anything remotely "bad." Au contraire! The "great patriarchs" and "heroes" of the Old Testament would be considered perverts and criminals by today's social and moral standards. But the New Testament also does not escape criticism, as Akerley reveals the bizarre and pathological attitudes regarding sex therein as well.
When "The X-Rated Bible" first came out in 1985, even though it was published by a small company it received some serious attention, and Akerley was forced into debates on radio and TV programs. His critics were unable to point out any serious flaws in his work and research - because he was merely quoting the "Holy Scriptures," not making anything up! For freethinkers and believers alike, Akerley has done a great service, because the Bible is a manual designed to manipulate the masses. The fact that very few believers actually read the "Good Book" and know little about its endless chronicling of perversion and genocide, constitutes proof that it serves as mind-control, as does the fact that those selfsame believers mindlessly believe the Bible is some great, spiritual work because their priests and pastors have selectively fed them "feel-good" passages. In reality, a close examination of the Bible will nauseate all but the most insensate.

Hmm... It seems to me that anyone seriously interested in knowing what the Bible contains might find out by reading the Bible itself. This farcical book is for those who are for whatever reason hesitant to read the Bible and are looking for an excuse (valid or otherwise) to justify their ignorance of Scripture.

When "The X-Rated Bible" first came out in 1985, even though it was published by a small company it received some serious attention, and Akerley was forced into debates on radio and TV programs. His critics were unable to point out any serious flaws in his work and research - because he was merely quoting the "Holy Scriptures," not making anything up! For freethinkers and believers alike, Akerley has done a great service, because the Bible is a manual designed to manipulate the masses. The fact that very few believers actually read the "Good Book" and know little about its endless chronicling of perversion and genocide, constitutes proof that it serves as mind-control, as does the fact that those selfsame believers mindlessly believe the Bible is some great, spiritual work because their priests and pastors have selectively fed them "feel-good" passages. In reality, a close examination of the Bible will nauseate all but the most insensate. As the great statesman Thomas Paine said, quoted by Akerley:
"Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and torturous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled, it would be more consistent that we called it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness, that has served to corrupt and brutalize mankind; and, for my part, I sincerely detest it, as I detest everything that is cruel."
And the eminent freethinker Robert Ingersoll stated:
"Nobody holds with greater contempt than I the writers, publishers, or dealers in obscene literature. One of my objections to the Bible is that it contains hundreds of grossly obscene passages not fit to be read by any decent man; thousands of passages, in my judgment, calculated to corrupt the minds of youth."
Ben Akerley has compiled these various obscene passages in one easy-to-read book that loosens the bonds of erroneous beliefs which have caused inconceivable carnage and turmoil upon this planet. And his wonderful work has now been re-published in a beautifully done layout by the experts at Feral House. The back cover blurb runs, "That's right, friends. We're talking about the Holy Bible, a book filled with incest, rape, adultery, exhibitionism, debauchery, abortion, prostitution, drugs, bestiality, castration, scatology - all the nasty stuff!" In exposing the Bible's "dirty little secrets," Akerley cites scripture, chapter and verse, and explains sexual euphemisms and innuendoes designed to go over the heads of the common folk, which they obviously have. "The X-rated Bible" is truly a unique book that should be read by all who are interested in what the Bible really says.

HASH(0x941f9168) von 5 Sternen Naughty, naughty 30. Oktober 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
If you have a drop of irreverent blood in your veins, you'll get a big kick out of this book. It deals with the most believable aspect of the Bible: that people were no different then than now. Just as crazy, just as horny. Also just as nasty to one another.
Mr. Akerley does a good job of presenting this ribald side of the Holy Book, and when it's not diluted by less interesting material, it makes quite an impression.
I'm waiting for the companion book, tentatively titled "The Blood-soaked Bible: A Gruesome Survey of Violence in the Scriptures."
I understand there's a problem at the publishers, as it's turning out to be a four-volume set.

HASH(0x94316c00) von 5 Sternen Great Reading for Believers and Nonbelievers 1. August 1998
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book explores all the dirty parts of the Bible and shows that the Bible, far from being the prudish book that the Moral Majority would like to think it is, is full of the stuff. Highly recommended. The author does have an obvious anti-religious bias, and the book is published by the American Athiest Association, but that doesn't distract from the central point of the book which is that the Word of God contains reference after reference to sex, and not all of it in a negative light either.

HASH(0x941f924c) von 5 Sternen Serious, in-depth analysis. Not for those who want erotica 13. November 2003
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Those who have given this book negative reviews just by "coincidence" happen to be either religious fanatics or disappointed people who were looking for erotic literature, but instead saw that this work was all about showing that the Bible is not as "good" a book as the Church wants us to think it is.
This book offers a detailed account of the many lewd actions described and, what's worse, praised in the Bible; it's food for thought. And thought requires an open mind. That said, if you're one of those people who adore televangelists, forget it.
Also, forget it if you're looking for a piece of erotic literature or for a set of pornographic novels with a religious twist.
I really wonder when someone will write a survey of the pro-racist, bigot and fascist messages of the Bible, though.

HASH(0x950166cc) von 5 Sternen valid and relevant 2. Dezember 2006
Von The Nellernator - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
this book is really good.

it provides the reader with background of the author which helps you extablish his stance. he is/was (?) a professor at a university (and an atheist), and a christian organization rallied against some activity or group that was made for or involved homosexuals, and he wrote in their newspaper about how they're really oblivious to all the sexual commentary thats actually in the bible. he educates the reader on the verse and gives other insights to them by psychologists, philosophers, even archeologists. it shows you verses in the bible under different headings like "homosexuality", "abortions" "rape", "sodomy and masterbation" and other things that most people don't assume are in the bible, but actually are.

the problem i had with this book was at the end, it had an application that is to be mailed in for either an Atheist book club, or some sort of Atheist organization. its almost like he's saying "well, since i've shown you all there is about christianity, and pulverized its arguments and beliefs, you really have no choice but to become an atheist". i'm sure, being an atheist he knows what its like to have someone trying to force their religion down his throat, but that is kind of what he's doing. and when you can show the invalidity of one religion, like christianity, then there isn't an obligation to atheism. theres also theism, deism, agnosticism, buddhism, muslim, sikhism, jainism and the other million religions there are out there.
