Why would the name be used if the weekly theme is from fiction?

It would seem to me obvious that Mr Garg considers the Bible to be a work of fiction. One may not agree with that conclusion, but the sentence is understandable. Just as I find it obvious from your (rhetorical) question that your view about the book is the opposite of Mr Garg's. HTH.
Ceci n'est pas un seing.

Thank you for posting and pointing this out. I fully agree and it is a shame that the most popular NON-fiction work would be referred to as fiction. Quite ignorant in my opinion. I'm afraid I've lost a bit of confidence in our Wordsmith. Shame.

We try not to get into political or religious discussions here.
