Confessions of a Bible Thumper

I rarely quit reading a book before I finish it, but once in a while it happens. This time I had to quit for my own sanity. I cannot disagree with Michael Camp's premise more, and the longer I read, the angrier I became. Michael's Confessions were not totally baseless, but instead of seeking to understand more than to be understood, he missed what were to me some obvious points. He wants God to be a god only of love, but not a god of justice. I will not disagree that there are abusers, misusers, and twisters of the Bible, but taken in and of itself, it will speak volumes to us, if we only let it.
