Bible Study for Atheists

I wish this existed back when I was making my first crawls through the Tanakh ten years ago - it would have made me feel a good deal less alone in my dumbfounded astonishment at the parade of terrible, terrible things that is the Old Testament. The author quotes extensively from the original material, as a proper Bible study ought, and his commentary is both light and enlightening throughout.

Ramayana Online

Same as above, only with the Ramayana!

Tales from the Shahnameh

This is the home for the comic book form retelling of Persia's great epic, the Shahnameh. The first three comics are out and fantastic, and the fourth will be releasing soon!
