Quite frankly, I don't think the Bible sucks. Certainly it does not suck any more than Homer's Iliad, or Shakespeare's Hamlet, or any other story.
Some of the stories in the Bible are quite interesting and fascinating. Some books included therein are outright boring (e.g., the Book of Numbers).
If there is anything that "sucks", it's not the Bible, it's the silly belief that it was written by God, or that it is infallible, or that it is literal truth.
But of the many writers and editors who contributed their talents to it not a single one claimed to be writing infallible teachings put into his head by God Almighty.
Indeed, if the authors had not turned into dust centuries ago, they'd probably be turning in their graves, ripping their hair, and screaming outloud: "No, that's not what I meant!!!"
