Booking Through Thursday
- Just out of curiosity, as we enter into Passover and Easter season... have you ever read the Bible? Just the odd chapter or Psalm? The whole thing? (Or, almost the whole thing? It's some heavy reading, of course, and those "begats" get kind of tedious.) Not really. I've read bits and pieces about a million years ago.
- If so, was it from religious motivation or from a literary perspective? Stuck with nothing else to read in a hotel room the Gideon's have visited? Any combination? Well, I think it was curiosity more than any other reason. The poetry is quite beautiful.
- If not, why not? Against your religious principles? Too boring? Just not interested? Something you're planning on taking care of when you get marooned on a desert island? Why haven't I read the whole thing? I'm not all that interested at the moment. Not to mention that it is heavy reading, maybe a modern version and not the King James would be easier.
- And while we're on the subject... what about the other great religious works out there? Are they more to your liking? No, unless you count Paradise Lost.
