Faster than a Speeding Heretic

By Timothy R Butler | Posted at 5:44 AM

As I noted the other day, I ordered The Collect'd Writings of St. Hereticus and the Hereticus Papers, two satirical books, off Amazon at the recommendation of a professor/friend of mine. I ordered them Thursday night, and to my surprise, both showed up at my door today. Keep in mind, these were used books, so it was individual sellers, not Amazon.com, doing the order fulfillment. I'm impressed!

I haven't opened the latter one yet, but the first book is in very good condition. Better yet, it is really funny. If the rest of the book is as good as the first chapter, it should be a book my readers ought to seek out a copy of. The humor comes from the fact that in it presents its satire so perfectly like something a real religion scholar would have written… only it is absurd when you really think about what it is saying (just like the Tillichian Lord's Prayer I quoted from an online excerpt of the Hereticus Papers).
