Do any of the non-believers on here at least enjoy the Bible as literature?

    I suppose I do. My favourite aspect of it has always been Judas, the betrayer, and a lot of it is still pretty rich, particularly the Gospel of John.

    Yep, it's good to know about the Bible to be able to criticize it. :O Also, some of the Ancient Testament stories are very beautiful (Ruth, Deborah).

    I enjoy watching things on the history channel about things regarding the Bible.

    I really like the reoccurences of certain numbers throughout the Bible(3, 7, 40).

    Reminds me of the reoccurences of 19 in The Dark Tower series.

    I don't read Stephen King books.
    Most just because he's ugly.

    They should make it into a movie trilogy.
    Like the Lord of the Rings!

    The Bible's got some very good points and some very bad points. But all in all, I like the good points. "Let he who is free of sin cast the first stone." Always liked that.

    There is tons of action in the Bible. Remember when Jesus shot a man in Nazareth just to watch him die? Remember that?

    Yes, but I'm talking about the actual literature aspect of it. I like a lot of the Bible's message, but that's not necessarily at discussion here.

    To better appreciate some of the subtlety of the bible, I've heard you need to learn Hebrew and/or Greek, some parts are essentially poetry

    I rather like Exodus. Epic, and I'm into the whole overcoming oppressive authority thing.
