Post Biblical Criticism

It's too long, far fetched, and there are not enough pictures.

Someone has met one of your objections:

Glossy Bible will use pictures of fashion models

Quote:
Claudia Schiffer is expected to be chosen to portray Eve in the Illuminated Bible, which will retain traditional text.

The project is the brainchild of four Swedish entrepreneurs who want to make the Bible more attractive to young people.

It has drawn a mixed response from religious leaders. . .

Gustaf-Wilhelm Hellstedt, said: "Instead of a boring drawing of Adam and Eve we may well have a couple walking down a New York street, kissing."

Photographers signed up to the project include Paolo Roversi - who has often worked with Miss Schiffer and Madonna.

David Phillips, the general secretary of the Church Society, branded the project a gimmick. He added: "The real concern is to make known what the Bible teaches, not to make it attractive."

The Bishop of Durham, the Rt Rev Michael Turnbull, told the Sunday Telegraph: "Anything that enlivens people's interest in what a good read the Bible is, is good. But it needs doing with taste."

Toto, is there any truth to the rumor that Jerry Falwell was contracted to be the talking snake?

I think that ex-President Clinton nominated himself to model King David.

I would have guessed Clinton to be King Solomon(all those wives) but David makes sense too.
