Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

"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)

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.

Not good

This is a fairly typical Christian apologist tome. It's starts off with some "shocking" statements I presume designed to titillate believers, but quickly falls into "...and history confirms X, therefore the Bible is true". It grows tiresome pretty quickly, although I made it better than half way before putting it down in boredom and annoyance. Spend your time checking out a much more interesting and objective book by Neil de Grasse Tyson -- The Sky Is Not the Limit: Adventures of an Urban Astrophysicist -- as he illuminates the wonders of our world, you will not be able to put it down. Veritas Omnia Vincit.

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
