Christians needn't be any more squeamish than the Bible itself is—and it contains many things that most Christians shy away from! In this carefully organized catalog of sexual, violent, and other blunt biblical passages, Joseph Smith develops a "Christian aesthetic" to help us process our culture's daily deluge of such material.
