Friendly Atheist Podcast Episode 26: Steve Wells, Author of the Skeptics Annotated Bible and Strange Flesh

Our latest podcast guest is Steve Wells, creator of the Skeptics Annotated Bible (online and in print).

Wells’ Skeptics Annotated Bible website is one of the most useful I have ever come across. The print version of the book is a must-have. Wells is also the author of Drunk with Blood, which documents all of God’s killings in the Bible. His newest book is called Strange Flesh, and it’s about how the Bible is used to justify anti-gay bigotry or, depending on who you talk to, support LGBT rights.

We spoke with Steve about his time in seminary, how one documents the number of deaths during an imaginary flood, and how Christian LGBT-rights advocate Matthew Vines gets it wrong.
