I started this blog after having a conversation with my aunt in which I halfway joked that I was going to read the entire Bible. In actuality, I have been telling myself I was going to do that for at least 10 or 15 years now, but I have a major talent for procrastination. I was raised as a Methodist and attended Christian school from preschool through 6th grade, and remained Christian until I was about 18 or so. I then decided that it no longer made sense to me, so I have been basically agnostic (with a lean towards atheism) since that time.
But even when I was Christian, I never read The Bible the whole way through. It seems that very few people actually do this, and we really should read the thing before making these life decisions about our religion, right? So now I’m finally reading it. And I plan to write a review of every book. I’m trying to be as objective as I possibly can, and since I never paid much attention in Sunday School/elementary, maybe my lack of memory will help my objectivity. Let’s see how long I can stick with this.
p.s. For a bit of extra background, these are two blog posts on my old blog which basically led me into creating this blog:
