Holden Caulfield on the Disciples:

I like Jesus and all, but I don't care too much for all the other stuff in the Bible. Take the Disciples, for instance. They were all right after Jesus was dead and all, but while He was alive, the were about as much use to Him as a hole in the head. All they did was keep letting Him down. I like almost anybody in the Bible better than the Disciples.

(Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, 99)
