    I just read the entire Bible (both testaments!), and it was much funnier than I remembered. Also shorter. I feel fully equipped to engage in religious debate with any Jewish or Christian authority. At least, as equipped as most of them seem to be to engage in scientific debates, and that didn't seem to stop them.

    It is conveniently short.

    This book is like God Is Disappointed in You except each book of the Bible is only 1-2 setences. Like the other book, the humor comes from finding a funny way to express what's actually in there. I think this book (if you bought the e-book version) makes for a bunch of fun pages to put up on your cubicle or print up in a calendar with one book per month for a few years. But I enjoyed GiDiY more because the extra text allowed the satire to be a bit deeper by being even more truthful to content of the Bible. That said, it was pretty fun to read the entire Bible in about five minutes.

    Best version of the Bible I have ever come across, for two reasons: 1) It is not as tediously long as the others and 2) it doesn't take itself seriously. My main issue with it is the title, which implies there is some actual usefulness to the non-abridged version...

    Tremendo resumen de las sagradas escrituras. El contenido de la biblia sin todas esas tediosas e inútiles expliaciones morales. Solo lo bueno: las muertes, Dios volviendose loco y Pablo escribiendo cartas a todo perry. Mis dieses.

    Remotely funny, but generally: meh. The same way as the days when I enjoyed misinterpreted lyrics are gone, I'm growing weary of this kind of humor. Big fan of SMBC, but this was mostly disappointing.

    Finally, I feel qualified to lead an angry mob in a crusade. Deus vult!

    Same fun as the science abridged book. However, the presupposition is you have at least skimmed the Bible. Then it is really funny because Zach manages once again to capture the pure essence of the books without giving you an actual clue. Even worse, if you would use these summaries of the Bible with a Christian, you would probably upset him beyond redemption."P.S.: No chicks talking in church." 1 Corinthians 5:11

    SummaryIt's a mini book, so I'm going to give it a mini-review. Some of the summaries in here are hilarious. Many are insightful. It's definitely sacrilegious, so if you adhere to a Christian creed, keep that in mind when deciding whether to read it. It's a quick read, so there's also little opportunity cost. I recommend it as fun way to pass a half an hour for anyone who enjoys humor about Christian things who won't be offended by someone outside of Christianity poking fun at it.

    As a lifelong Lutheran, I had to admit this book was pretty much right on point. I especially loved the entry for the book of "Proverbs:"DO do good stuff. DON'T do bad stuff.And for God's sake, LISTEN now and then.

    Muy divertido y rápido de leer. En pocas líneas o frases resume la idea central de cada libro de la biblia de una manera bastante honesta y con vocabulario sencillo. Ideal para aparentar ser un experto en la materia.

    Eh, it was okay, for such a short read. The Science: Abridged Beyond the Point of Usefulness was way better. I find myself agreeing with this one:

    Perfect length for the bible. all other versions should be binned and this one distributed worldwide.

    A very quick and funny read that delivers the weinesmith wit in a condensed format.

    I finished reading this book before I finished eating my snack.My favorite part was about the whale.

    This is just the best. I'd wish for it to be longer, but that would defy it's essence, so I wont.

    Sesuai judulnya, isi buku ini adalah ringkasan dari Kitab Suci (Holy Bible, dipakai dalam agama Kristen) yang tiap kitabnya jadi cuma 1-2 kalimat saja. Becandaannya beberapa lumayan lucu sih meskipun 'lokal' banget karena perlu baca Bible dulu sebelumnya. Tampilannya sih biasa saja, hanya ada teks saja di tiap babnya, tidak ada gambar komikal khas SMBC-Comics sehingga jadinya terasa kurang maksimal. Isinya juga tipis, cuma dibaca beberapa menit juga selesai (memang pada dasarnya ini adalah bacaan ringan iseng-iseng yang bisa selesai dalam waktu < 10 menit).

    It's worth reading even though you do not know some books of bible (oh gosh.. I knew there are many of them, but so many? ). To get some jokes it was essential to have some knowledge about story it conveys, but great many of jokes were funny even without deeper biblical knowledge.If you like smbc comics you'll like this books, style of humour is similar thought expressed via different media.

    Is it cheating to claim credit for reading a book this brief? Hey I read lots of stuff that is not books, too! Useful summary of each book in the Protestant Bible, if you don't find the breezy style offensive.

    Best version of the Bible I've read so far. Then again, only version of the Bible I've read and ever will read. There are far better works of Fiction and Fantasy out there. But if you want to read the Bible, this is the version you want.

    A fair substitute for several biblical books. Am thinking about those in the old testament that are written in the style of Donald Trump, i.e. all the history + 4/5 books in Pentateuch + the prophets.

    Well, it's short and to the point, which is more than I can say about the "begats" section of the original. :)

    Perfectly named! And full of in-jokes for those who actually have a sense of each book. Quite good, and hilariously brief (up to 2 sentences per book).
