Matt Ridley: By the Book
In the New York Times Book Review:
Disappointing, overrated, just not good: What book did you feel you were supposed to like and didn’t?
Easy. The Bible. Not even the fine translations of William Tyndale, largely adopted by King James’s committee without sufficient acknowledgment, can conceal the grim tedium of this messy compilation of second-rate tribal legends and outrageous bigotry.
