La Bible amusante pour les grands et les enfants (English: The Amusing Bible for Grown-ups and Children) was a book by Léo Taxil with illustrations by Frid'rick published in 1882 by Libraire anticléricale, in which he pointed out what he considered to be inconsistencies, errors and false beliefs.[1] At the time of publication the author was accused of irreverently mocking the Bible.[2] The Times called for the book to be suppressed.[3]
