Scenes from a Bookstore near you

No kidding. One of our kind readers found my Fasting book on top of The American Patriot’s Bible and rescued it (my book). Surely there are some parables or illustrations of deep truths here. Anyone have one?

The should have left the book on fasting on top of the “Bible” so that no one would find it.

Fasting as a response to a grievous sacred moment.
There is a lesson here.

(elevation of American Patriotism as mission of God does strike me as a grievous sacred moment.)

Fasting is much easier when you’ve completely lost your appetite over the Patriot Bible.

Is that George Washington kneeling, fasting, and praying on the cover?

Actually, somebody probably covered up the Patriot Bible with your book. I’ve done that before. Looking for “How to become a millionaire God’s way”? Well, first you’ll have to go through Augustine’s Confessions.

Theology After Darwin 1 (RJS)
One of the more important and more difficult pieces of the puzzle as we feel our way forward at the interface of science and faith is the theological implications of discoveries in modern science. A comment on my post Evolution in the Key of D: Deity or Deism noted: ...this reminds me of why I get a

Almost Christian 4
Who does well when it comes to passing on the faith to the youth? Studies show two groups do really well: conservative Protestants and Mormons; two groups that don't do well are mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics. Kenda Dean's new book is called Almost Christian: What the Faith of Ou

Let's Get Neanderthal!
