Hello! My name is Jack Kolinski and I just want to be your friend. Okay. That is not completely true. I am trying to sell you a book, but not just any book, MY BOOK. Still, it is a very funny, entertaining and thought-provoking book, although some would argue it is blasphemous, obscene, heretical and presumptuous. I don't necessarily object to those characterizations so long as those people agree that it is blasphemously FUNNY, obscenely FUNNY and heretically FUNNY, which, as I say, it IS! The Bible (According to Jack) Part I The Old Testament is a Bible for truth-seekers, doubters, skeptics, cynics, gays, lesbians, feminists and anyone else who believes or wants to leave open the possibility of belief in a loving, compassionate, inclusive deity who could not possibly have written or inspired many of the negative, narrowminded and just plain wrong laws, rules and pronouncements contained in the Old Testament.
The Old Testament contains many myths and legends which were never intended to be understood as the literal and irrevocable word of God. It also contains way too much smiting, slavery, and "kill everybody including the goats and sheep." It was written by men (and maybe a few women but they probably had to pretend to be men to get past the editors) who were trying to define their "god" and to differentiate that "god" from their neighbors "gods" who were constantly trying to defeat, subjugate, exile and annihilate the ancient Jews.
Jack's Bible persuasively demonstrates that God has a wonderful sense of humor. Somewhere along the line, the old men who have always seemed to be running things took out the laugh track. They had no right or scriptural basis to do so. Jack has endeavoured to put it back. Fortunately, Jack is not encumbered with degrees in theology, ancient languages or any other "ologies" which would require this book to bore the crap out of you.
Read with an open mind and heart and learn what God really meant to tell you while laughing yourself silly.
