The Skeptic’s Annotated Bible: Now in Print!

Back in high school, not long after I began coming out to close friends as an atheist, I was given a Bible by an acquaintance of mine. She thought that if I read it, I might learn something. So I began reading it. And I marked up all the questionable passages and contradictions I could find.

Then I came across Skeptics Annotated Bible and found out someone had already done all the work for me.

Anyone who has ever visited the site knows what a valuable resource it is. What do you want to find? Injustice? Misogyny? Contradictions? Violence? It’s all marked up for you.

Creator Steve Wells recently released the book we’ve all been waiting for: an actual annotated Bible:

This is the Bible you want to read. And give to people as Christmas gifts. And bring to church (if you have to go).

Here’s a sneak peek at what the first pages look like (click to enlarge):

You want this book. It doesn’t matter that the text is accessible online; it’s *so* much better when it’s on paper and in the form of a book you might actually read in the pew.

I only wish I had it in high school so I could’ve given my acquaintance a thank-you gift.
