In 1947, Dr. Sebaceous Piafraus discovered the Terminally Ill Sea Scrolls in the same month the Dead Sea Scrolls were found. The Dead Sea Scrolls became internationally famous, but the Terminally Ill Sea Scrolls were consigned to obscurity, along with their discoverer. Dr. Piafraus, who endured decades of ego-bruising neglect, provides translations of well-known Old Testament stories, which he insists are the most authentic versions of the stories because the Jewish eschatological cult that created the Scrolls claimed that they were. These stories are more fully developed than in the Old Testament and are humorous, though some parts are appalling, because Bible stories often are appalling.
"One of the funniest, most pointed books about religion ever written. In these days of rampant fundamentalist craziness. G. Richard Bozarth provides a much needed tonic. If you liked James Morrow's Bible Stories for Adults, you'll love Bible Tales for Ages 18 and Up."
--Chaz Bufe, author of The American Heretic's Dictionary and compiler/editor of The Heretic's Handbook of Quotations
