I found this neat trivia book for a Christmas present. It is just a bunch of top all-time top 10 lists covering a broad array of topics. A lot of it is very good. Plus, for being a secular book it actually portrays Catholicism quite positively. One of the many examples is that there is a top 10 people who saved Jews during the Holocaust list and Pope Pius XII is number 1:thumbsup:!
Quite unfortunately, however, there are some problems. The worst that I have found so far is as follows: There is a top 10 list of bizzare bible stories. I can't tell if this list is just being humorous or downright disrespectful. But at one point it talks about the part in Exodus where the LORD passes by Moses and all Moses sees is the LORD's back. The writer sadly makes a blasphemous commentary about the passage in a sexual nature, i.e. that Moses was looking at the LORD impurely :eek::mad:
I'm wondering if I should return this book rather than give it as a gift. But there is so much positive stuff in there about Christianity and Catholicism that I feel like I am throwing the baby out with the bath water. What should I do?
