A fellow Chicagoan and atheist, Bruce Critelli, has decided his 2011 Resolution is to read the entire King James Bible. If you’ve never read the Bible, this could be a comfortable way to do it: surrounded by other atheists.
Bruce will read a little bit each day, write about his thoughts, and ask some general discussion questions. Along the way, there will hopefully be a productive two-way dialogue.
The project begins on January 1st.
(Side note: David Plotz at Slate did something similar a couple years ago, though there wasn’t much of a dialogue; it was really just his own observations.)
