What do you think of it?

I personally found it to be full of plot holes and quite distasteful in parts.

This god fellow has got issues.

Distasteful? I found it's descriptive readings a refreshing trait, differing from todays literature that avoids explicit sex. I found this passage to be particularly erotic.

Well you know that David and Goliath scene will corrupt kids' minds and make them turn into serial murderers.

(Note the reference to the Nightline vs. Jack Thompson)

Not in my copy. You must not have the first edition.

I found this later editorial revision to be quite unnecessary.
By turning this protagonist into a tragic hero, I feel it invalidates the struggles of said character to promote good will, brotherhood and social justice with a deus ex machina that eclipses his life's work.

Yeah, but the third revision is pretty true to the original, if you can get used to the reconning of Yahweh to Allah and the poetry, it's pretty close. Consider it "Torah in Verse"

I like how he randomly has a link to a video of a woman beating a man at the bottom of the site.

New Testament has too many plotlines. That really ruined the series for me.
