COMING WEDNESDAY: Keiran King ... The Bible isn't a divine text - it's a messy history book

Published:Tuesday | March 11, 2014 | 4:34 PM

Keiran King is itching for trouble, and ultra-conservative religionists might just give him a scratch.



In his online column to be published Wednesday, March 12, Keiran writes: “Like the other 129 million books man has created, the Bible is just something people wrote to make sense of the world.



Nothing more, nothing less. ... Whatever authority it started with has been diluted from wine into water.



“As for stories of Jesus, just as no religion now can compete without a website and a Twitter feed, no religion then could compete without a charismatic godman and some decent miracles.”



Catch up with Keiran in Wednesday’s Commentary section.
