1. I just bought Beauty and the Mark of the Beast and I better like it, or I won’t like it.

    Totally buying this.

  3. John Otte says:

    I’ll have to check this one out. I’m always up for a good satire.

  4. Galadriel says:

    I know we’ve had discussions of satire and parody before, but I’m too tired to dig them up at the moment.

    Well, I have to admit, you totally got me.  When I saw the cover added to this site’s Library, I was envisioning a group of middle-aged men with horn-rimmed glasses and massive, leather-bound KJV Bibles formulating a plan to write a novel to Spread the Good News and Reach Out to the Culture.  Ha!

    That said, I am uncomfortable with the idea of making fun of the stereotype that I have just confessed to having envisioned.  That stereotype probably is rarely true.  My church community — practically everyone I know well in “real life” — is officially premillenial dispensationalist, and although I don’t want to completely accept that eschatology, the matter is far too serious to me for me to laugh at.

    Still, it made a fine, unintentional joke for those of us who frequently read Speculative Faith! 🙂
