"Well, this is it. Caesar had his Rubicon. What do Bible college presidents have? A Rubik's Cube?"

Tom Collins, mild-mannered president of a dwindling southern Bible college, becomes a target when a drunk prankster swaps his campus's American flag with the Christian one, and Dr. Tom refuses to "fix" the situation. Big media, exuberant students, petty enemies, and pretty secretaries all play a part in this happy-go-lucky satire for the twenty-first century.

Readers of PG Wodehouse's Leave It to Psmith and Christopher Buckley's Thank You for Smoking will appreciate this lighthearted new satirical novel from Douglas Wilson, author of the award-winning Evangellyfish (Best Fiction of 2013, Christianity Today).

"Rourke spun around and stomped out the door. Bradford followed him out. "Don't you agree? We really need to do our part to reduce this epidemic of illicit banging in the evangelical world."

Chad Lester's kingdom is found in the Midwest. His voice crawls over the airwaves, his books are read by millions (before he reads them), and thousands ride the escalators into the sanctuary every Sunday. And Saturday. And Wednesday, too. He is the head pastor of Camel Creek—a CEO of Soul. And souls come cheap, so he has no overhead.

When Lester is (falsely) accused of molesting a young male counselee, his universe begins to crumble. He is a sexual predator, yes. But strictly straight (and deeply offended that anyone would suggest otherwise). Detectives, reporters, assistant pastors, and old lovers and pay-offs all come out to play.

John Mitchell is also a pastor, but he has no kingdom to speak of—only smalltime choir feuds. He is thrilled at the great man's fall, but his joy quickly fades when the imploding Lester calls him—and a lover or two—for help. How low can grace go? Whores, thieves, and junkies, sure. But pastors?

It's election season—America's most lucrative sport—and there are no rules.

When climate scientist Dr. Helen Gardner accidentally reads an email from the International Task Force on Climate Change which proves that global warming is a lucrative scam, she's shocked and horrified.

But that's nothing compared to how she feels the next day when her boss (the head of the Task Force) tries to have her killed.

Helen goes into hiding with the help of her neighbor, a "fundy" Bible college professor named Cody, and an anti-eco-activist lumberjack-writer.

But Helen's scandal isn't the only headline floating to the surface: the Democrat presidential candidate gets career-changing news; his running mate hits rock bottom after years of infidelity; the current Republican VP's past sins won't stay hidden forever.

And Cody is about to uncover some dirt of his own.

I can't seem to hold on to this book

I read this book over a year ago and loved it so much that I gave it away within a week of finishing it. I wanted all my comrades to read it. Since then, I have given away 4 more copies and have yet to buy myself another copy.

When the Man comes around

Just finished the commentary when the Man comes around. Thoroughly enjoyed it. So much information. Planning on going through the rest of Douglas Wilson's commentary. Thanks again

Waiting for finances

Waiting for finances to purchase 4th grade bundle, 2nd and 1st grade stuff to start our first year of homeschool! Feeling excited and prepared! I will be anyways!

As Professor Kirk lamented, "What *do* they teach them in these schools?" Certainly nothing so helpful nor so exciting as this! They ought to amend that.

How To Read A Book

This book was tremendously helpful and much more accessible in comparison to Adler's book.

Inspiring, Convicting, and Encouraging

I was enriched by this book in every way. The many quotes from great writers mixed with the knowledge and experience of Andrew Naselli was a blessing for me. Looking forward to reading more for the enjoyment and enrichment it will bring.

The book called how to read a book has a picture of a book that says how to read a book on it. Great book

A great little book, well-structured

I read this aloud to my 8 and 10 year old, who made small groaning noises when we reached (what felt like) each page's numbered list. But I greatly appreciated the structure, and think it will help when referencing it in the future.
Loved the Carson, Lewis, and Piper quotes. Loved the focus on reading the Word everyday. Appreciated the education on 'skimming', or glancing through a book to consider purchasing it. Still don't know if I'd call that reading a book, but a useful skill to have.
The author is a thoughtful, well-read brother who truly loves books and wants everyone to get what they need from edifying reading.

Encouragement and Help for my reading

The book was easy and enjoyable to read cover to cover. It relieved some “readers guilt,” reinvigorated my desire to read, and gave me great tools. It is concrete and specific rather than vague and general. I would highly recommend that you get it and read it! ;-)

I’ll admit I macro-read the book in its entirety but went back and micro-read Appendix B for wisdom on cultivating a love of reading for my children. Great book by Andy Naselli and Canon Press!

These are so fun. Much improved from other early readers. Happy to support Canon Press!

Awesome value for the money!

Fun

My grandson really watched this
