Hot Times In The Old Testament Tonight
The Old Testament and the New, thanks to a German Protestant group that's put together a calendar with 12 staged photos depicting erotic scenes from the Bible:

"There's a whole range of biblical scriptures simply bursting with eroticism," said Stefan Wiest, the 32-year-old photographer who took the titillating pictures.

Anne Rohmer, 21, poses on a doorstep in garters and stockings as the prostitute Rahab, who is mentioned in both New and Old Testaments. "We wanted to represent the Bible in a different way and to interest young people," she told Reuters.

"Anyway, it doesn't say anywhere in the Bible that you are forbidden to show yourself nude."

Bernd Grasser, pastor of the church in Nuremberg where the calendar is being sold, was enthusiastic about the project which is explained online at

"It's just wonderful when teenagers commit themselves with their hair and their skin to the bible," he said.

For religious types, these Germans sound like fun.

Not particularly interesting or artistic in my opinion.

I really like the photographer's comment on the criticism from believers and church officials: "Those who don't want nudes in church should also insist on having statues and paintings removed." (Translated from the link to the "Spiegel Online" article above.)
