About Steve Allen on the Bible, Religion and Morality. More Steve Allen on the Bible, Religion and Morality
America’s dean of intelligent comedy doesn’t think the Bible is a laughing matter. His good look at the good book is a closely reasoned examination of “Scripture”, designed to encourage rational analysis of the most influential document of Western civilisation. Although the Bible has been consulted for more than twenty centuries, Allen asserts that there remains an extensive degree of common ignorance about it. Noting that most people today rarely read the Bible, Allen is convinced that the millions who do read it are not able to understand certain passages at all.
