The Naked Bible
An Irreverent Exposure of Bible Verses, Versions, and Meanings
that Preachers Dishonestly Ignore
There is much more to the Bible than the select cherries plucked from its hundreds of pages by preachers and politicians. There exists, in fact, a massive, rotten underside. But who has the time and sufficient quantities of NoDoz to read the entire book? In this collection of brief, entertaining essays, written in a tone both matter-of-fact incredulous and wryly sarcastic, Andrew Bernardin dives deep beneath the Bible’s cover to share a peek of some of the customarily cloaked, sordid content. He reveals both how “God’s inerrant word” has been worded differently in many versions of the Bible, and how the messages change from Genesis to Revelation within each Bible. In addition to the essays, Naked contains bonus, eye-opening verses translated into blunt, everyday English by Andrew himself. From front to back, The Naked Bible strips bare the outright scandalous and plainly silly alike. If you care to know more about the lesser known Bible, this is one fun way to do it.
