Overview


Ever feel a little guilty for a white lie or for “borrowing” something without asking first? Wondering what Jesus would have done? Now there’s no need!


 


Make the Bible Work for You is an irreverent guide to justifying your bad behavior through specially chosen biblical quotations. Learn how to justify gossiping, cheating on your taxes, or sleeping with a coworker with a real biblical quotation, along with commentary from Reverend Hellenback on its effective application.


 


If you’ve ever wondered how finger-wagging right-wingers get away with their week-long cocaine binges and cheap adulterous motel trysts while still being welcomed into the Kingdom of Heaven, this book is for you.


 


With more than 150 biblical quotations, this is the perfect book to assuage the guilt of even the most fallen Christian—and to get a snort from the most militant atheist. Give the gift of absolution, or keep it for yourself. You never know when you’ll need a little pick-me-up after grievous sin.

Clever, irreverent humor. An excellent distraction from the current political season or the crashing economy and a great gift for the holier-than-thou crowd.
