What does the Bible actually say about homosexuality? Are natural disasters punishment for man's sinfulness? What do Muslims believe about Jesus? What is the real source of enmity between the Jews and the Arabs? Is the Bible the literal word of God? Should religion dictate national and international policies? Do Judaism and Christianity have similar predictions about the End of Times? This book answers these and other pertinent questions with documentation delivered in an informal and even humorous style that sets it apart from more academic works in circulation on the same topics. Extremely timely in light of the unprecedented emphasis on religion evident in the run-up to the 2012 presidential election, it is guaranteed to be an easy, interesting but also challenging read. It will surprise, if not shock, many who thought they knew everything they needed to know about the Bible and its conflict with social evolution in Western culture.
