God: The Most Unpleasant Character in All Fiction,

by | Mar 6, 2024

What words come to mind when we think of God? Merciful? Just? Compassionate? In fact, the Bible lays out God’s primary qualities clearly: jealous, petty, unforgiving, bloodthirsty, vindictive—and worse! Originally conceived as a joint presentation between influential thinker and bestselling author Richard Dawkins and former evangelical preacher Dan Barker, this unique book investigates what may be the most unpleasant character in all fiction.

Barker combs through the Old and New Testaments (as well as thirteen different editions of the “Good Book”), presenting powerful evidence for why Scripture shouldn’t govern our everyday lives.

This witty, well-researched book suggests that we should move past the Bible and clear a path to a kinder and more thoughtful world.
