The most revealing approach to the reading of the OT is book by book and verse by verse with, of course, a number of highly recommended exceptions, like the first ten chapters of the book of Leviticus which merely deals with the biblical God's preoccupation with the death and slaughter of animals. He does like the smell of roast meat, not exempting even the human variety apparently, given his predisposition to burn them.


The Old Testament God needs to read Wayne Pacelle's 'The Bond, Our Kinship With Animals'.


A definite and undeniable pattern emerges when it the OT is read as suggested above. It goes something like this:


Slaughter, slaughter, rape, sacrifice, be nice, slaughter, slaughter, sacrifice, plunder and burn, seriously ... be nice.
