As you may have noticed, I did not return to Bible blogging last Thursday. The feedback I got regarding the hiatus was overwhelmingly, “Your take on the Bible is interesting, but why put yourself through that?”
Wise advice from my trusted friends and advisers, I think. So the “Atheist Reads the Bible” project is on permanent hold for now. I did have someone suggest that I approach it a whole book at a time and give a more general overview, which is an idea I may eventually circle back around to. But not yet.
I’m really enjoying not reading the Bible. It gives me a whole extra hour every day for the important things, like sleep, Netflix, and cuddling with cats!
