    One thought on “Blaming Jesus for Jehovah: Rethinking the Righteousness of Christianity

    1. Marie Tovaas

      It's all thereI chose the five star rating because the author carefully documents all of his statements and positions. He points out some of the obvious contradictions in the Bible, points out the terrible effects of some of teachings found in it, or at least implied by it and consequently taken as real by its worshippers, and finally talks about what will happen as traditional Christian (and indeed Islamic and other) religious beliefs fade out of society and the human race finally is free of re [...]

      Price is an atheist, biblical scholar, and former fundamentalist who makes a solid case for stripping away the “nice” portrait of Jesus espoused by progressive Christians.

    3. Steven Williams

      The goal of this book is to deconvert the Christian believer by explaining that the morals of the New Testament are no better than the morals of the Old Testament. After discussing some problems of the Bible in general, Robert M Price, moves on to the main topic—the bad morals of the New Testament. Rather than provide a brief synopsis as I usually try to do I will just say some things about the notes I took since it has been a while since I finished it. The first concerns the forward by Valeri [...]

      Not, for me, the best of Bob's books, but only because I am not quite the audience it is aimed at. Here, Bob looks at the image of christianity as driven and given meaning by the perfect morality of the father god, and therefore by the character usually described as his "son." Bob shows that Judaic/Christian scripture on the other hand actually portray a vindictive, amoral, vengeful, boastful, and sinister god-head. He then demonstrates how Jesus, and the institutions named for him, reflect that [...]

      Pretty good read, though as Price says he's "writing to those in the pews." That may be a tad optimistic. I think there's going to be more of a "preaching to the choir" effect, as anyone who knows of Price and his work has probably long since lost their faith. But perhaps not. I think the book does a good job connecting Jesus with the Old Testament, and showing that it is impossible to divorce the two. You can't have the Sermon on the Mount, yet reject the genocides of Joshua. Price also points [...]

    6. Shane Clements

      Another great read from Dr. Price. In Blaming Jesus for Jehovah he offers a perfect combination of information, insight, and humor to keep the reader interested and engaged. If you are interested in looking at the anthropological, sociological, and cultural contexts of Christianity this would be a good book to add to your library.

    7. Glenda Dickey

      The world is changing.This author cuts to the chase as to the direction modern thinking is going. It is time for Christianity to get its head out of the sand and realize there is more to know about what religion is and is not.Robert Parr
