Poultry in the Pulpit

poultry in the pulpit cover imagePoultry in the Pulpit: Further Revelations of the Vet in the Vestry
Cameron
1988

Submitter: Not sure what to make of this from the cover.

Holly: This is the memoir of a veterinarian who became a minister. Here’s the Publishers Weekly review. It also got good reviews on GoodReads. The title is catchy and the cover is odd enough to get people to take a look. It seems like a pretty good choice for Christian-centric, rural communities. The Vet in the Vestry was Cameron’s first book, and this one continues his story with more on the ministerial part of his life. It may have appeal to James Herriot readers. I’m calling this one odd enough to be interesting, but old enough to be weed-able if it no longer circulates.

Oozing from every pore

Oozing for My Lord
Heron-Love
2007

Another unfortunate title in our ALB line up. The author, however, insists that this title came to her. This book is actually decent enough as a memoir/personal faith story. The contents are totally appropriate for a general religion section, but I just can’t get past the oozing.

Satanic Computers

Computers and the Beast
Webber and Hutchings
1986

I had no idea that I should be worried about the massive communication and knowledge produced by modern technology. Biblical prophesy is here to warn us that the computer, and all the knowledge it can bring, is a potential minefield of evil. (I know this because there is a big snake hanging out on the computer on the cover.)  Robots, computer networks, credit cards, and electronic fund transfers all have potential for evil. The anti-Christ will obviously exploit this technology during the end times.

Watch your back everyone!
