The Bible is full of inconsistencies. The leaders within the Christian faith are con-men and liars. There are better choices than Christianity. The things Nietzsche states that he values over Christianity in the book include: Buddhism, Code of Manu, Jews/Judaism, Islam, /5().

Beyond Good and Evil is the title of Friedrich Nietzsche’s philosophical work. It is a highly controversial book in which he successfully debunks the tenets of Christianity and in which he relativises the notions of good and evil.
