      Christians need to read this book.

      To the other reviewer - I think the point is that the author is mocking aspects of Christian culture, but not Christianity. He's opening people's eyes to the good in Christians, when people who are outside of the Christian culture usually just see Christian culture's mimicry of the culture of the world, but with poorer quality (because somehow in dealing with what is sacred makes it okay to make bad art and cheap knockoffs?).

      He says in his conclusion that "the best aspects of Christian culture—the unabashed celebration of the transcendent, the challenge to crass materialism, the commitment to personal responsibility—helped me more clearly to see what is too often lacking in secular entertainment and media. Jesus's radical message of brotherhood, selflessness, and dignity may be just the antidote to our contemporary ethos of shamelessness and overindulgence."

      So don't think he's out to get you. Instead, be humble in recognizing the chance to see a very sympathetic look at how you're being perceived.

      The sad thing is that I couldn't tell whether this book was mocking Christians or trying to open people's eyes.
