The famous New Testament quotation "God so loved the world" is a mistranslation, as are the titles "Son of Man" and "Son of God".
The Bible doesn't call homosexuality a sin, and it doesn't advocate for the one-man-one-woman model of the family that has been dubbed "biblical".
Jesus had siblings, in spite of the Catholic rhetoric about the "ever-Virgin Mary".
The Ten Commandments don't prohibit killing or coveting.
Even many of the Bible's details end up distorted: The fruit in the Garden of Eden wasn't an apple, it wasn't a whale that swallowed Jonah, and many animals marched onto Noah's ark in groups of seven, not pairs. The Bible Doesn't Say That succinctly explains each misunderstanding, detailing the nature of what went wrong and offering insight into the original meaning of the world's most popular book.

never knew how much is actually misunderstood by the lack of a proper translation. still maintaining my stance as an atheist, it is good to hear some of the highly quoted verses abrogating, abdicating and even justifying against certain issues, are actually being quite discombobulated by certain people.

I enjoyed thinking through the arguments presented in this book, though upon listening to them I didn't not always arrive at the same conclusion as the author because there were certainly others verses that didn't seem to be addressed though, in my opinion, relevant.
