Item description for The Big Book of Bible Bloopers: A Lighthearted Look at the Misquotes, Misconceptions, and Misunderstandings of the World's Bestselling Book by Stephen Lang...

Overview
Much has been said and written about the Bible-but not everything has been accurate. Bestselling author Stephen Lang (more than 1.7 million books sold and author of The Complete Book of Bible Trivia) has gathered misquotes, misconceptions, misuses, and more that have touched people's funny bones or made them groan in disbelief. In this fun collection, readers will be intrigued by "errors" that include: In 1852 a "cleaned-up" version of the Bible was published by a vegetarian. All references to violence, sex, and meat were taken out. The image of angels with harps doesn't appear in the Bible. It probably originated from John Milton's poem Paradise Lost. Fidel Castro announced that "Christ chose the fishermen because he was a communist." As readers are entertained by these fascinating facts, they'll discover many biblical truths and learn some of Christianity's history.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Big Book of Bible Bloopers: A Lighthearted Look at the Misquotes, Misconceptions, and Misunderstandings of the World's Bestselling Book?

Some interesting facts about the Bible and Bible Translations  Sep 11, 2007
This is a rather variable book with a couple of fascinating chapters, including different heresies, sects and cults and translation and printing errors but with other rather dull sections with strange things that students, celebrities and pop culture think about the Bible. The title suggests this book contains funny items but there aren't many of those, it's a general look at the way in which people have misread the Bible or chosen to amend it. The author makes some rather strange generalisations at times and his particular theological and doctrinal standpoint is always portrayed as absolute truth (and people with other views are often shown as wrong or heretical, particularly Roman Catholics) and his anti-communist sentiments seem decades out of date, but the book is worth reading for the good chapters and there were some interest new insights into Christianity and Bible translation through the ages.
