The Human Bible

You should definitely not tune in to the new podcast from Robert M. Price, oh heavens to Betsy no (as Snagglepus was wont to say).  It's called The Human Bible, and your mortal/immortal (select one) soul is most assuredly at risk should you attempt to listen.
The Human Bible is a podcast that deconstructs and demystifies the Bible. It takes a secular, sober, and impartial look at the Bible—no belief in the supernatural, no favoritism, no animosity. No questions are off limits, and no dogma stifles our inquiry.
All this, presented with good natured banter?  Danger Will Robinson!
Join host Robert Price as he answers listeners’ questions and delves into amusing, peculiar, and puzzling issues in regular segments like "Prophetic Scorecard" and "Is That in the Bible?!"
We'll cover everything from the Q Source (including explaining what the heck that means) to that one time God wanted to kill Moses for having a foreskin. It's not to be missed!
So, who is Robert Price?
At Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary he took an MTS degree in New Testament (1978), then, at Drew University, a PhD in Systematic Theology (1981) and a second PhD in New Testament (1993). He has served as Professor of Religion at Mount Olive College, North Carolina, pastor of First Baptist Church, Montclair, NJ, and Director of the Metro NY Center for Inquiry... His books include Beyond Born Again, The Widow Traditions in Luke-Acts, Deconstructing Jesus, The Incredible Shrinking Son of Man, The Da Vinci Fraud, The Reason-Driven Life, The Pre-Nicene New Testament, Jesus Is Dead, and The Paperback Apocalypse
Don't be fooled.  The first episode is now up, stay away!  Avoid at all costs.

You have been warned!

  1. Price's introduction to the Christ Myth Theory, as linked to in previous subject, "Bob & Bart" (3Mar2012), is an excellent and fair overview to the subject. Amazon gives a very generous preview with this. A must read!
