    This is a complex subject matter, so let me start by giving full disclosure. I am, as an atheist, biased against religious belief in general. I always attack christians and their idea that they get morals from the bible, having read the bible, this is fairly easy, because however you interpret it, a god that tells you to kill your soon (Abraham ordered to kill Izak), or if the "good man" gives up his daughters for rape instead of the angels (Lot in Sodom and Gomorrah), that is just plain wrong.

    This book is full of very helpful and precious information. The lay-out isn't the easiest to follow as it's clearly written for academics or specialists in the field, but it's a great resource for a researcher. I'm glad I found it and appreciated its meticulousness.
