The Divinely Sinful Saints by Con Trong Bui surprised me and, having studied in a Catholic Seminary with the dream of becoming a priest, I found it extremely helpful because the author dares ask questions and raise questions that challenge popular dogma. The author challenges our way of reading the scriptures and creates a healthy link between a literal and a symbolic interpretation of the Bible message. In this book, readers will find those passages that contradict the core message of Christianity. The author deals with diverse topics, including topics from the Old Testament such as origins of humankind, the truth about reincarnation, and the fallacies and faith-driven insights that Christians hold dear. The author explores the themes in the Bible and starts with a critical analysis of the first book of the Old Testament, the Book of Genesis.
Truth can be very uncomfortable and this book challenges readers to read the Bible with a critical mind and to distinguish between myth and truth. This author looks at the inconsistencies in the scriptures and helps readers look for what is essential. Con Trong Bui does a wonderful work researching this book, making readers understand that “The worst mistake of all would be an erroneous belief about religious literature or the scriptures of a religion.” The writing is beautiful, fluid, and conversational, devoid of the jargon that is peculiar to the subject. The author invites readers to humbly consider what they read and to learn to sift that which is false from the truth. The Divinely Sinful Saints challenged most of my Christian beliefs and compelled me to take a second look at some of the popular teachings I have grown up with. One of the best critical works I have read on Christian theology.
