Michoel Stern’s Is the Good Book Bad? is a very well researched and very well reasoned response to those who not only reject the Bible as being archaic and primitive, but who also reject the Bible as being the source of much immoral violence in Western Civilization. Stern makes a compelling case against such prejudice by meticulously exploring Scripture on the very points its enemies uncritically reject – its moral teachings.
