or God Likes the Smell of Burning Fat

by Edward Falzon

Book Image Not Available
Overview
“Complete with time-lines, charts, photographs and other illustrations, 'Being Gay Is Disgusting' is Edward Falzon’s hilarious and eye-opening chapter-by-chapter retelling of the first five books of the Bible.” (Gay Chicago Magazine) -- "Falzon sets out to remedy Biblical ignorance ... The successful result, intended to enlighten and educate, is a hilariously faithful summary.” (Front Page Online) -- From Genesis to Deuteronomy, 'Being Gay is Disgusting' captures the essence of the Bible in the most modern and inappropriate way possible. Creation, the Flood, Joseph's cool dreams, escape from Egypt and the long and surprisingly gruesome story of Moses. And won't it be nice to be able to have a semi-intelligent discussion about the Old Testament with your God-fearing friends! -- “Falzon highlights the convenient rewrites and cherry-picking that others have done to cause harm. Cunning and funny, everyone is fair game here.” (Instinct Magazine) -- “Falzon does not interpret, embroider and conjecture. His very plain and simple reduction of what the Bible’s first five books actually say will outrage the fundamentalists but is the simple, if often absurdist, truth nonetheless.” (Out in Jersey)

About the author
Edward Falzon is an Australian author, speaker and scholar of religion, based in Shanghai, China. Raised in a household that might be described as "liberal Catholic," he underwent all the usual ceremonies of Catholic childhood: First Communion, Confession and Confirmation. While traveling the world for business, Falzon encountered Christians of all stripes and discovered that most, including himself, had never read a bible. After picking one up for himself, he discovered the boring wordiness and repetitive prose that no doubt prevented others from reading it, and set about to paraphrase and shorten the whole thing into a five-book series. Edward Falzon is the author of the "Biblical Morality" pentalogy, the first of which is "Being Gay is Disgusting."
