Frank Viola’s Review of God Behaving Badly | Beyond Evangelical

Here is a link to Part 1 of Frank Viola’s blog  interview of me, focusing on topics related to God Behaving Badly:

God Behaving Badly | Beyond Evangelical | The Blog of Frank Viola.

In addition to some of the more typical questions (Why’d you write the book?) he asks more provocative Bill Maher-esque ones (1-3 I don’t address in GBB):

1) What about the law to chop off the hand of the wife who grabs the privates of her husband’s opponent?
2) Why can’t guys with crushed testicles enter the assembly?
3) Why did God try to kill Moses because he wasn’t circumsized?  (Do you notice a pattern?)
4) What about the slaughers of the Canaanites and the Amalekites?

Hope you enjoy it.  Part 2 comes tomorrow.

How would you answer these questions?
