“Let us introduce you to parts of the Holy Bible which you have not heard about in sermons from the pulpit, that may shock and dismay you and should certainly convince you that the bible ought to be X-rated. Below you will find a pornographic view of sex and women, lewdness, depravity and sexual violence often ordered or countenanced by the biblical deity. Don’t take our word for it — look it up for yourself.”
These are the opening words of An X-Rated Book: Sex & Obscenity in the Bible.
The mere existence of the book is putting American fundamentalists into a fury – but it’s a scriptural book, based on the Christian Bible.
Before you condemn the book, consider reading it yourself.
