Urban Legends of the New Testament

Seen this book yet? 

It's a delightful read, though you won't agree with everything in it. The "legends" the author refers to include:

  • Jesus was a carpenter
  • All giving must be done in secret
  • Hell referred to as a garbage dump near Jerusalem
  • Repent means "to change your mind"
  • Paul was a tentmaker
  • The gospel is dynamite
  • Money is evil
  • A pastor's children must be saved
  • Christians must be commanded to tithe

This last one doesn't surprise me. The author has published quite a lot on the subject of tithing!
