    The rival to the Bible

    The world's oldest surviving Bible is in bits.

    For 1,500 years, the Codex Sinaiticus lay undisturbed in a Sinai monastery, until it was found - or stolen, as the monks say - in 1844 and split between Egypt, Russia, Germany and Britain. ...
    For those who believe the Bible is the inerrant, unaltered word of God, there will be some very uncomfortable questions to answer. It shows there have been thousands of alterations to today's bible.

    The Codex, probably the oldest Bible we have, also has books which are missing from the Authorised Version that most Christians are familiar with today - and it does not have crucial verses relating to the Resurrection.


    The Secret Origins of the Bible Tim Callahan 

     

     

    The Encyclopedia of Biblical Errancy - C Dennis McKinsey - From the Preface -"This book and Biblical Errancy teach a kind of Sunday School in reverse by telling people all of the things they should have heard on Sunday morning but didn't.  After all, if atheists, agnostics, freethinkers and humanists don't reveal the contradictions, errors, fallacies and problems in the Bible, who will?"  And the next 500 pages provide a compact, well organized reference that's a great companion to Callahan's book which shows WHY the Bible is so riddled with problems. Besides the well known errors, including self contradiction, in the creation and exodus myths, the book provides an excellent source for discussions and debates on science, math, astronomy and social issues.  Most of the book is uncontroversial among modern bible scholars; unfortunately the increasing influence of biblical inerrantist fundamentalists in American discourse requires this book.
