Item Description...
Overview
Defends the reliability of the Bible and argues that it is the source of Western ideas of charity, justice, reason, science, and democracy.

Publishers Description
More a culture war book than a work of religious apologetics, The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible exposes the intellectual fraud, shoddy arguments, and totalitarian agenda of those who seek to further their political goals by mocking the authority of the Bible.

Politically Incorrect Guide To The Bible  Sep 20, 2008
Very good book showing where Athiests, Agnostics and religous cults are wrong in their attach on the Bible. It is all backed up with scipture and with science and plan old logic.
 
Great Salvo Against Atheist Evangelists  Aug 9, 2008

This book is a response to the recent barrage of anti-christian books by atheist evangelists. The book serves as an excellent primer to answer the most popular atheist arguments, all of which are old recycled arguments that have been answered time and time again. While the chapters on alleged Bible errors and biblical archeology are light and the book tries to skim by design/evolution, the book shines when it comes to topics I would consider cultural apologetics. For example, Hutchinson writes excellent chapters on what the Bible really states about slavery, homosexuality and government. There is also an excellent chapter on the origins of science in Christianity. While not meant to be an exhaustive book on any of these topics, and a little light on references, it is overall a valuable resource.
 
Mistitled  Aug 4, 2008
The book is mistitled. It is the most politically correct book I have ever seen. It completely misrepresents any interpetation of the bible other than the biblist idolotry of the modern evangelical christianist junta. It drips with contempt at healthy a Christian approach to scripture.
 
The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Bible   Jul 19, 2008
2 May 2008 - This is a is a useful antidote to faith-phobic propaganda currently disseminated by bestselling authors like Richard Dawkins, Christopher Hitchens, and Sam Harris. Hutchinson outlines material from less accessible, heavily scholarly works that confirm the wisdom and truth of the Judeo-Christian tradition. I loved the way he, systematically refutes claims made in an episode of the television show "The West Wing" that deliberately misrepresented the Bible even though I am a fan of the show. Hutchinson also does a great job addressing several popular faith-phobic talking points: that Christianity has murdered billions of people; that the Bible is an absurd book; that there is an inevitable war between Christianity and science or Christianity and democracy; that Christians invented slavery, etc. In dismantling these faith-phobic canards, he calls on published experts in a variety of fields: archaeology, theology, sociology and history.
 
A joke...  Jul 17, 2008
presented as factual research.

While book is chock full of various argumentative gimmicks used to limit cogent thought on the topics covered, I find the book's most significant shortcoming to be constant use of one-sided and partial research (carried out only to the depth required to support biased conjectures). For example, when touching on Nazism the book conveniently sidesteps Hitler's predilection for "Positive Christianity", etc.

The book is supposed to be about the bible itself, independent of a specific religion [...] but it completely fails to review its real cost to humanity, its legacy of divisiveness ("We are better than them") and the resulting bloodshed.

sad, very sad...
