"There exists in the world today a nearly universal presumption that the Holy Bible is a ""Good"" book. This is a presumption that is quite literally reinforced all around us. Bible versus are etched into the walls of our national monuments. Churches operate tax-exempt. Even the President of the United States takes his oath of office with one hand planted firmly on a Bible. Michael Earl thinks it's time we get beyond this false presumption and see the Bible for what it is. In Bible Stories Your Parents Never Taught You, Earl exposes us to stories of looting, murder, genocide, torture, slavery, and other biblical atrocities that have failed to register in the minds of the general public. Earl argues that an awareness of these atrocities not only enables us to base our opinions of the Bible on fact, but it also helps us to recognize the Bible's profound influence on many of history's most violent and brutal episodes.
