A Tale of Two Books: Book 2

Matthew 5:30
'And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.'

Flaming Fire is an amazing New York band who are equal parts B-52s and the Manson Family. Their toga-ed brand of avant doom pop is only part of the story... Several years ago, they started the Flaming Fire Illustrated Bible, a database containing the entire Bible, verse by verse, and chapter by chapter. You can select a favorite verse, illustrate it, and upload your illustration to the site. So far, they have 2,521 illustrations, and only 34,144 to go. Such luminaries as Dame Darcy, Tony Millionare, and...um...me have contributed to the project. If Flaming Fire are coming to your town, they usually set up an illustration party before the show. I just checked, and the Deuteronomy bible verse about crushed testicles mentioned below is still available.
