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.

The anti-Christ will obviously exploit this technology during the end times.

Watch your back everyone!

I can’t speak for every library, but around here the blog post would suffice.
