Score: 97.19

Explanations:

lorax (0): Thumbing down just to counteract psdavid's proselytizing. I think parts are worth reading for basic cultural literacy, but nobody likes being preached at in a forum like this.… (more)

Wordwizardw (0): Why not read one of the better translations, if you're going to read the whole wretched Bible in the first place?

aulsmith (0): Again, parts of it. But the whole thing? Knowing some of it was done from unreliable manuscripts? Nah.

psdavid (1): A book in two parts, the old testament which is the new testament hidden and the new testament which is the old testament revealed. Every one of the 66 books (39 Old testament and 27 new testament) interlinks and joins with every other, written in original languages by 40+ authors spanning 2,000 years and many cultures. A book that attracts lively debate as to authenticity and yet every day sees more of its writings and dates confirmed by archaeological finds.… (more)

Thumbs down: silverbooks, camainc

Score: 64.06

Explanations:

camainc (0): One only needs to read Augustine's City of God to know that Gibbon was so very wrong about the reasons for Rome's "decline and fall."

JacobKirckman (1): Gibbon's not 'on my list', as I have it (just not catalogued on LT yet)! Commenting purely to counter Camainc's claim that Gibbon was wrong. I'd take an historian (even an 18th century one) over a Bible-Basher any day...… (more)

Turambar (1): Whether Gibbon was wrong or not is irrelevant to whether The Decline and Fall ought to be read. We don't read Herodotus because he was right. We read him because he helped shape how a civilization thought, as did Gibbon in his own, later way.… (more)

Thumbs down: jaysonwm, TCBard, silverbooks

Score: 63.5

Explanations:

silverbooks (0): mostly propaganda

Turambar (9): True, Franklin does a good deal of propagandizing, but the book is a sparkling example of Enlightenment Plain Style as well as being one of our earliest examples of American Exceptionalism and a sort of Pragmatism. It doesn't matter if you agree with his views or not; it's undeniably significant.… (more)

aulsmith (13): Silverbooks is correct, but I found it engaging. Of course, I was only 12 and never reread it, so I'm not sure how it would come off now.
