Enemy of Humanity by Jubei Raziel is a non-fiction study of Christianity and the Bible, setting itself above the parapet as a wholly faithful exploration of facts, without fear of influence customarily derived from conjecture or supposition. Raziel begins with an introduction to his journey, a casual read that launched an ambitious investigation. Over the course of thirty-three chapters, Raziel is meticulous in the combing through of a wide-ranging degree of wisdom from the origins of a holy book that has been indiscriminate in who it appropriates and then recycles its texts from, to the foundational enslavement by way of a creation story that Raziel is able to succinctly dissect using intellectual reasoning and the Bible's own scripture, and on to the background of popular catchphrases such as, “Love the sinner, hate the sin,” and the reality of what they mean.
Jubei Raziel holds absolutely nothing back in Enemy of Humanity, which I found to be so much more engaging and profoundly honest than the dozens of theses I've collected over the years. The narrative is a well-constructed balance of intelligentsia and the comfortable conversational style of a man who knows what he's talking about. And Raziel definitely knows what he's talking about. My favorite parts were found in chapters eight, Contra-Christianity where contradictions are laid bare in a near-perfect laundry list of tit-for-tat scripture, and twenty-two, wherein the stunting of psychological and emotional expansion results in subservient fixation to the church, “Because they’re catalyst to the paradigm.” If you're going to read a book that digs deep into the core of Christian theology and rounds up its findings with facts, Enemy of Humanity is your stop. All aboard.
