I admit that I can be slow about things, but I am more than a bit miffed that I've read 16% of "The Devil in Pew Number Seven," by Rebecca Nichols Alonzo and Bob DeMoss before I realized it was Christian book. I don't have anything against Christianity, but I do have something against publishing a really incredibly poorly written work, solely on the basis of it being about someone's faith. Not even Hallmark could make this a good story.

And another piece of tripe hits the curb....

Thanks for the heads-up, LFM. I was seriously considering buying that book. Now I won't because that genre is just not something I am interested in reading.

Yes, there should be something about the intent of a work to give testimony on the cover, like: "Christian faith overcomes evil" or something like that -- don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against peoples' testimonies of faith. It's all good.

That said, I'm with Y Lisa: I, too, hear enough about Christianity.
