''The Bible: The Complete Word of God (abridged)'' is a play by Adam Long, Reed Martin & Austin Tichenor, with additional material by Matthew Croke, first presented by the ReducedShakespeareCompany in 1995. The show skims over all the books of Literature/TheBible in two acts: one for the Old Testament, the other for the New Testament, adding in anachronistic jokes and songs and a [=SuperSoaker=] Fire Extinguisher for entertainment value.
