Re: left behind

"Oy" is right! Those books are the last resources I would use to try to turn people onto Jesus and his messages. That reminds me of a book my brother recently gave me called The Vision and the Vow. This guy wrote a stream of consciousness about God on a prayer wall that was copied down and distributed online, it apparently became pretty famous in some Christian circles. Anyway, he ended up writing a guide to "the vision" because he was in an audience some time later and a girl was quoting it. She was solemnly saying, "Like it says in The Vision..." and not at all realizing that she was actually quoting St. Paul -- the author wrote in the preface how he wanted to get up and scream that he had just plagarized the New Testament! So, he wrote this stuff later as a guide, which is good. Still, it's sad to hear how apparently quite a few ardent Christians have not really brushed up on the official source too much!
