Perfect for those interested in learning more about what the Bible actually says but who have neither the time nor the interest to read the actual thing
Ever thought you should know more about what’s in the Bible, not because you believe in any religion, but because it’s the most read book in history? Before you dust off the family Bible, or reach into the hotel bed stand, The Nonbeliever’s Guide to Bible Stories will save you a lot of time and trouble. Coupling an editor’s pen with a skeptic’s commentary and humorist’s wit, it offers the highlights of each book of the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, and distills them into quick, entertaining, bite-sized chunks. It’s all here: the characters, famous quotes, tall tales, and references often heard in film, music, art, literature, and conversation. You’ll also learn about all the sex, murder, harlotry, intrigue, magic tricks, ghosts, and sin that help fill sermons on Sunday mornings.

As someone who has read the bible several times, this is a fantastic book to have around. It's an enjoyable way to review content, and I can share it with my less-dedicated friend. They say reading the bible will make you into a non-believer, and this makes it just that much easier ;)
This abridged version of the bible will save anyone the hassle of combing through 1000+ pages of ancient dialogues, poems, and lineages.
From the perspective of a former Christian, this definitely recaps all of the stories I remember hearing as a child. Several years of church summed up in one afternoon of reading, minus all of the guilt and interpretations that people still argue about. I definitely recommend to anyone interested in the history of Christianity. By the end of this reading, you'll probably wonder how religions such as Scientology are mocked while the similarly obscure story of the Bible is so widely accepted.
I give this a rating of 666 stars, 10 horns, 7 angels, 7 plagues, and 7 bowls of doom.
This book is a lot of fun. I have some history with the religious text, so much of it is review or clarification. It is simplified in a rational and humorous way, and the author appears to be matter of fact rather than pushing an agenda. I would read other books by him.
