News Flash: Corporate America sucks at theology

I got a 25$ gift card for my birthday to Barnes and Noble. I was trying to figure out what to buy, scrolling through their “Christian theology” section and these are some of the books I find:

For Men Only: A Straightforward Map to the Inner Lives of Women
Jeff Feldhahn / Hardcover / WaterBrook Press / April 2006
Our Price: $11.99
You Save: 20%
Usually ships within 2-3 days

End of Days: Armageddon and Prophecies of the Return
Zecharia Sitchin / Hardcover / HarperCollins Publishers / April 2007
Our Price: $20.76
You Save: 20%
Usually ships within 24 hours

Now, admittedly, there are some good books to be found, but really… I think the closest title I (when I say I, I really mean Chris) could think of for “For Men Only: A Straightforward Map to the Inner Lives of Women” is “speculative theology.”

  1. When I was at a large Christian bookstore chain in the midwest last month, their “Christian Living” section was bigger than the “Theology”, “Pastoral Helps”, and “Bible Reference” sections combined. It certainly is telling…

    Telling and depressing. The title is supposed to be all tongue-in-cheek, but I also wonder, for how many people this really would be a news flash, that both a semi-dating book of the sexes and a tremendously fictional book do not belong in the theology section.
