The Devil's Dictionary of the Christian Faith

: $16.99


A morphing of Ambrose Bierce's The Devil's Dictionary with The Oxford Dictionary of the Christian Church, this book takes a satirical look at the contemporary church scene. It intends to help the church look at itself from a new, satirical perspective and see how the world views the traditions of the church, both old and new. The Christian reader should see a need for change of perspective, programs, and identity and find reason to act on the need for change. Each dictionary entry will make the reader laugh as well as think. This tongue-in-cheek look at Christian church programs, theology, ministry, personnel, and activities will prompt church leaders and members to laugh at themselves and their hidebound ways, while humoring scholars to laugh at the irrelevance of so much scholarly activity.
