David Plotz at Slate finally finished his quest to blog the Bible.
He said this about what he was doing last September:
My goal is pretty simple. I want to find out what happens when an ignorant person actually reads the book on which his religion is based.
Not a bad idea. Plotz is Jewish, but the same idea should apply to Christians. Reading the book your religion is based on (not just particular excerpts during church) is worthwhile. It might teach you something you didn’t know or make you question what you’ve been taught.
The Bible blog’s index can be found here. The entries are short and pretty easy to read. For a sampling, just check out Genesis 1 and 2.
