Overview

This book is a collection of original, thoughtful pieces meant to illustrate and apply Biblical Christian principles. "Divine parodies" present Christian truths in an artful and entertaining form. A parody is a humorous or satirical imitation of something else. Christian parody is a time-honored tradition. The acme of Christian parody was achieved by Erasmus in "The Praise of Folly" 500 years ago. "Holy histories" are illustrations of Gospel truth drawn from historical persons and events. They should not be confused with hagiography, which in modern times is used pejoratively of histories and biographies not considered sufficiently critical or cynical. There is much to be learned from the past, and many persons worthy of emulation. Also included is a selection of original poetry, which likewise is meant to convey Gospel principles.
