Sword of the Spirit Publishing Opens Pandora's Box
Book promising to ruffle the feathers of all readers at some point launches from Cape Carnival. The author expects to be hung in Effigy, or perhaps in Obscurity, which is eight miles south of Effigy.
Despite the presence of approximately one gazillion books expounding on the Christian faith, Parker threatens to alter the tilt of the earth's axis by producing yet one more thick volume involving religion. One look at the chapter titles suffices to convince the astute observer that this book is no ordinary piece of academic drywall. A short journey into the text alerts readers to the fact that Parker is aware that although Jesus spoke against the leaven of the Pharisees, he did not warn against levity. Thus this rhetoric is leavened with humor as it explores some of the most serious questions facing humanity. One pundit indicates this book can be a real page turner if it is set down too close to a moving fan.
This book, which will never be considered politically correct, aims for the higher goal of being Biblically correct. In most areas of human endeavor, battles are being waged to establish truth. Religion has to be the leader when measuring the number and ferocity of the battles, even within Christian factions. It has been said that not everything that glitters is gold. Is it possible that not everything that has the label "Christian" attached is the bona fide product? Is it possible that some of the sacred cows of Christianity are not of Christ? With the abandon of a blitzing linebacker, Parker rushes in to sack potentially fallacious holy bovines.
The intent of the content of this book is not to make people feel comfortable with their current spiritual state and belief system but rather to explore absolute truth and encourage people to question whether or not their own beliefs need adjustments. This book looks at Christianity with an eye of constructive criticism, not to condemn but with a goal of helping to purify the body of Christ. A secondary goal is to introduce people who are not followers of Jesus Christ to the essence of "real Christianity"
