    1. True Biblical EducationI've been a fan of the SAB for over a decade. Not only does it point out subtle contradictions buried among thousands of verses, but it is an excellent tome of humour and honest, didactic revelations that no preacher would even think of uttering in their Sunday School classes.Inside it you will find, among many other things:- How much financial value the war deity of the ancient Israelites put on children, adults and newborns (it's not what you might expect, especially if [...]


    2. Church-going people have someone to read the Bible for them, and tell them which passages to read. They do not question this, and seldom wonder what the rest of the book says. They just assume it is all good, because Mom, Dad, the guy at the church podium and their own version of Jesus all say so. This is the book for people who want to read the whole thing, without getting bogged down by "begats."It offers a critical view of the contents, and indexes them rather tidily. If you only want to read [...]


    3. Technically, I've already read this, or at least large sections of it, as I've been a fan of the website for nearly five years.Not an academic book, not even meant to be scholarly. An interesting insight to just how nutty, boring, or horrible the bible comes across to non believers. Mr. Wells' notes are no worse then the opinions of theists that read through their scripture (or don't) without bothering to dive into the scholarship.For the skeptic wanting something fresh to add to their piles of [...]


    4. This quickly found it's way on my favourites shelf. The aesthetics are beautiful the soft cover, the ribbon book mark, and the biblical thin pages are worth the money for this book alone. This literally is a King James version of the bible.This Skeptics Bible combs through and highlights passages of the bible that display at least one of these fourteen categories:→ Absurdity, → Injustice, → Cruelty and Violence, → Intolerance, → Good Stuff, → Contradictions, → Conflicts with Scienc [...]


    5. The Skeptics Annotated Bible might be said, if one would forgive so ironic a phrase, to be a godsend for atheists everywhere. It began its existence online, and this is still the best place to use it. However, its compiler, Steve Wells, decided to take things further and have it made available in book form.The idea is quite simple. The work comprises the entire text of the Bible. Along the side of it, Well has provided annotations identifying everything that might be considered wrong with the Bi [...]


    6. If you've never read this I highly recommend it. "What is it?" Well I'm glad you asked! This, boys and girls, is a collection of stories passed down by word of mouth from a time when we knew nothing about our universe. Generation after generation passed these stories along until we came up with what we have in present-day: hundreds of versions of this book. "Why is this book important?" Another great question! Some find it important to study the ancient Israelites superstitious background. Other [...]





    7. Terrible scholarly from this poorly researched book which deliberately quotes out of context. The author even admitted that he is no Biblical scholar but goes on to proclaim that he doesn't need a scholarship. Well yes, I think he does especially when he takes metaphorical verses ,such as the verses from the Book of Job, to be literal. Here is one part of the commentary from this book:""Which shaketh the earth out of her place, and the pillars thereof tremble."The earth rests upon pillars and do [...]


    8. Very interesting read, even if you've read the Bible before. It's amazing how many contradictions I've missed the first time, especially all the intentional ones in the NT! It goes straight to my Favourites shelf even just for all the statistics in it. A must-read for any atheist and theist alike. I was a bit disappointed by the author's lack of philosophy knowledge, tho. Truly, Wells admits that he's no theologian in the beginning of the book, but it doesn't take a theologian to notice some of [...]


    9. Fun, and a good source. There are plenty of weird things that I never noticed until I read this one.Certainly not definitive. Or scholarly.


    10. Actually it's not the kind of book you read. You just kind of dip into it and out. It annotates the whole damn Bible so…


    11. I'm not sure how to review/rate this, because it's not a book you read cover to cover. It's a reference tool I use frequently and only anticipate continuing to do so.There are times when it seems Wells offers an abundance of analysis and references and other places where there's a complete drought. Some of the information seems a bit excessive and maybe even heavy handed, while in other areas the analysis is entirely lacking. I sort of see this Annotated Bible as, 'I'll take what I can get.'Beca [...]


    12. More a book to dip into than to read from end to end. Nevertheless a great resource, well researched by the author.Want to know what the bible says about sex, whether it is good or not, then this is your go to. Spoiler alert, it says different things and in many cases they are contradictory.My favourite part is that the structure allows you to look at the good bits of the bible as well as all the odious ones and come to your own conclusion about what the bible is trying to say.Check out similar [...]
