The editors of GQ Magazine recently released a list of “21 Books You Don’t Have to Read,” as they asked a number of novelists and several staff members to weigh in on “great books” that they believe have not “aged well,” as well as what publications they would recommend instead. One novelist cited the Bible, calling it “repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned.”

“The Holy Bible is rated very highly by all the people who supposedly live by it, but who in actuality have not read it,” wrote novelist Jesse Ball.

“Those who have read it know there are some good parts, but overall it is certainly not the finest thing that man has ever produced,” he opined. “It is repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish, and even at times ill-intentioned.”

Ball rather recommended “The Notebook, the Proof, the Third Lie” by Agota Kristof, a trilogy fiction novel that, according to its description, is about two twin brothers “who must learn every trick of evil and cruelty merely to survive” in a land torn apart by turmoil.

The Bible was #12 on GQ’s list of books not recommended for reading. Other rejected writings included “The Old Man and the Sea” by Ernest Hemingway, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” by Mark Twain, “The Lord of the Rings” by J.R.R. Tolkien, and “Gulliver’s Travels” by Jonathan Swift. Full Report.
