More-recent remarks by Trudeau —

Bible Stories for Skeptics

Review
With a bit of a twinkle in his eye, Richard Trudeau—a skeptic, retired Unitarian Universalist minister, Harvard Divinity School grad and (though he doesn't use the word) humanist—removes the supernaturalism from some of the common stories in the Judeo-Christian Bible for the edification of non-scholars.

— Edd Doerr, book reviewer for The Unitarian Universalist Humanist Association
