Question of the Day #51: The "good" book?

Do you find the Bible (or any other "Holy" book) interesting as mere literature? If you don't, is it because you find religious texts offensive, or could you enjoy one if it were at least, in your opinion, well-written?

Absolutely. If I didn't find the Bible so interesting, I never would have spent so much time reading it, and I wouldn't have deconverted.

Who can dislike Ecclesiastes?

I’ve yet to come across a “sacred” text that I would consider a good read. I find these writings interesting only in the context of the importance many people give them.

Yes, I can enjoy OT-3, the Book of Mormon, the Vedas, and songs celebrating Eckankar. Who wouldn't?

I don't find the Bible or other religious text to be terribly interesting as literature. Even a more accessible version of the Bible for instance would barely pass as enjoyable fiction, in my opinion.

Revelations is the only part of the good book I ever found interesting.... "hate the prostitute, make her naked, eat her flesh and will burn her with fire" how can it get any better than that?
