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!

The Jesus People: Old-Time Religion in the Age of Aquarius

Submitter: Groovy!

Holly: The Jesus People was a religious movement in the 1960s, and certain public and academic libraries could have a reason to keep books on the subject. There are newer books on the topic, though, like this one for example. If you’d like to read more about this particular title, though, Submitter shared this blog post from 2012. I can’t speak for every library, but around here the blog post would suffice.

Fix Your Nerves with Jesus

How to have Freedom from Fear, Worry and Your Case of Nerves
Allen
1954

Isn’t this cover awesome in its awfulness? I think the best part is if you are free from worry, one half of your face will be smooth and young looking.

This little number came from a church library and is all about how scripture will heal all that mental illness. Anxiety, OCD, and “sexual perversions” are all fixable with a little bit of Bible talk. I particularly like the quiz on dealing with reality. In case you are interested, I didn’t do too well on the quiz (last picture). I guess I am headed to an institution soon. Oh wait, I am already there sitting at a reference desk with the other people not dealing with reality.

Institutionalized at the Library,
