The Prostitute in the Family Tree

Douglas Adams

$24.99

Paperback
Douglas Adams thinks the Bible is very funny, but that we don't often get it. By missing humor and irony in biblical passages, readers miss more than an opportunity for laughter. They often miss the passage's intended meanings.

- Publisher

The Bible is funny! Very funny, according to Douglas Adams. In this book, Adams demonstrates how readers can discover this often-neglected humor looking at the Bible as a whole and seeing biblical stories with all their rough edges--the unethical and ambiguous characters, the unsolved problems, and the surprising endings. Adams argues that by missing the humor and irony of the Bible, readers often miss intended meanings as well.
