The Brick Testament -- A Bible For Our Times

Truly a bible for our times, and a stunning labor of love. This translation is remarkable, and is giving me some of the greatest insight I've ever had to this awesomely significant cultural fairy tale. Here's a tiny sample:

Genesis 38:7
But Judah's firstborn Er was offensive to Yahweh, and Yahweh killed him.

Genesis 38:8
Judah said to Onan, 'Have sex with your brother's wife, performing the duty of a brother-in-law to her, and raise offspring for your brother.'

Genesis 38:9
But knowing that the child would not be his, whenever Onan had sex with his brother's wife, he would spill his semen on the ground to avoid giving offspring to his brother.

Genesis 38:10
What he did offended Yahweh, and Yahweh killed him too.

I'll let the great religious scholar and humanitarian Pat Robertson remind us just how important this book is to our culture:

When you look at the holy books of other religions, you find fantasy and bizarre supernatural events that do not commend themselves to reasonable people. But the Bible is actually authenticated by history.

Thanks, Pat. This translation is helping me see the light.
