Google Books has made Bruno Bauer’s famous “Christianity Exposed” public — though it is in German. BUT the even better news is that when I open it in Google Reader and run the cursor over the text a little box pops up giving me the option to have an instant translation of the selected text! Nice.

    1. At least you are honest about why you reject such a book – although your reason is unusual among Anglophone Christians as far as I know.

      But I sympathize – I cannot stand Edward Gibbons because he condemned Buddhism and invented the claim that Gannys was a eunuch.

    2. KK, you don’t understand the nature of scholarly or intellectual inquiry. It’s not about agreeing with sources and past authors, it is about understanding them and being able to assess their contributions in various ways to the culture of the time and what society at the time was responding to, and engaging with them. My god, it’s because too many scholars “value the words of the Bible” that we have more apologists than genuine scholars of the Bible.

        1. That’s still missing the point. Human sacrifice is toxic but we must understand it to understand humans. Psychopaths are toxic but for that reason we need to understand them. Nazism is toxic so it is necessary that it must be studied and understood. Many religious cults are toxic and that’s why many have studied them closely.
