This is what 'literature' is coming to

If you are ever in need of a good laugh just pick up a flier advertising the latest in Christian books. Pathetic. Yet comically funny.
Here are some of my favourites:

"Will winning the title of 'Mrs. Proverbs 31' help her to resolve her issues?"

"With sassy style and radical hair, funky Raya Joseph sets out to conquer the Big Apple's garment district. But Raya soon meets her match - in fashion and flair - with personsal trainer Flex Dunham."

"Taking a vow to solemnly declare 'I won't' next time she's asked to be a bridesmaid..."

"...'Her Majesty' nearly suffers a melt down when she has to deal with her husband's job, aging parents, tight finances, and her responsiblities as a new mom."

"With an empty nest, a sagging body, and a sputtering marital spark, she knows she has to do something. But what?"

Kinda sad! This is why I don't read modern Christian "literature."

That one's great! Yeah, I was right to mock Christian "romances"

How about "The Gospel according to Frodo" or the new adversion of the Bible made to look like a flashy mag to entice teens. Or "Bad Girls of the Bible" or "Dieting according to to Scripture" (locusts and honey?) Some Christians are pathetic and so gulluble!!! etc etc etc...

I actually have a copy of a magazine new testament, aimed at 20-something women, (it was a gift) and I enjoyed looking through it. As a leader in a girls group aged 9-13 that is largely made up of community girls and not girls from the Church that is hosting it, I'm willing to defend a magazine aimed at their age demographic. It makes the completely unfamiliar Bible a little more easy to relate to.

The rest of the stuff is laughable, but I think in the right context there are some good things that can come out of that idea.
